Moriah Pre-K Experiments With Oil

The Moriah School pre-K learned all about the miracles of Chanukah. The class was taught that instead of the oil lasting for one day, it lasted for eight whole days. The children wondered about the oil and decided to explore it a little more. They used their five senses to examine oil. They smelled it, touched it, tasted it (in doughnuts), looked at it and listened to see if it made a sound (it didn’t). Then, the class gathered all the information that was observed and performed a special oil and water experiment. Each child got a bottle, poured in some water and oil. They shook, shook and shook the bottle until the count of 10. As the liquids settled, the children witnessed the oil and water separate. It was amazing to watch the oil rise to the top while the water stayed at the bottom. Pre-K Green loves being scientists.
