The focus story this week was Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. DSC03036Science was a great time for us to use our 5 senses and talk about a real coconut. The students passed it around the circle.DSC02933

DSC02934Then listened to it.  When we shook the coconut, it sounded like there was some liquid inside.DSC02936DSC02935

Later in the week we used a hammer to crack open the coconut! It didn’t want to open and Mrs. Abraham had to hit it a BUNCH of times!DSC02975The coconut cracked…
