English

 

 

Today I would like you to write 10 sentences about these two pages from the story of The Bubble Factory by Tomie de Paolo.  Look at the pictures and think about what is happening. What nouns and adjectives could you use?

 

Remember sentences have a capital letter and end in a full stop.  Some sentences end in question marks and also have commas.

Design and Technology

  

 

              

For the science activity today I would like you yo make some bubble solution and a bubble wand.

Make your own bubble blowing mixture!


Bubble Recipe

1/2 cup of dish detergent (washing up liquid)

5 cups water

 

Mix the ingredients together and use!

 

For even better mixture... If you have it add 2 tablespoons glycerine (available at the pharmacy or supermarket)

 

Make bubble wands

If you don't mind getting a bit soapy, you can blow surprisingly large bubbles by looping your thumb and first finger into a bubble blowing wand! Or loop some wire (garden wire works particularly well and is easy to loop) into home-made bubble wands. You can made huge wands out of wire coat-hangers, but adult supervision is required because the ends can be sharp. Pipe cleaners work too, but get soggy.  Drinking straws make lots and lots of sweet little bubbles.

Raid your kitchen drawers - look carefully and there are bound to be a few kitchen implements that have holes in them!

Other Bubbly Activities

  • Try catching a bubble on a wet finger, and then on a dry finger. What do you notice? It should be much easier if your finger is wet. Why?
  • Put some music on and pretend to be bubbles, blowing about in the wind.
  • Find some bubble wrap and pop bubbles!
  • Cut some shapes pieces from the bubble wrap and paint one side.  Then use them to make bubble prints on a large piece of paper.
  • Make a bubbly bottle toy

Half fill a plastic bottle with water. Add some food colouring and lots of washing up liquid.   Paint some glue around the top of the bottle before screwing on the cap and leaving to dry (alternatively, tape the bottle shut with masking tape). Now shake!
