We kilo sand samples from various beaches around Oahu, using magnets to test for iron, sieves to look for microplastics, and vinegar to test for calcium carbonate. The difference is astounding
when you kilo the color,shape, size and composition of each grain.
There is so much to kilo around us, at no cost, and extended-day provides the time.
Kilo the wind and which direction you feel it blowing.
Kilo the clouds overhead and watch how they change.
Kilo your ribcage as you breathe in and out.
A simple and fun introduction to kilo is to have students create a pair of “binoculars” using toilet paper tubes to focus their observations.
Take your birdwatchers outside with their binoculars and see how many different birds they can kilo!
