Always shine by using all your talents and skills!

We have started our Matter Unit! It's all about solids, liquids, and gases! We kicked off the unit brainstorming what we saw in the classroom that were solids, liquids, and gasses and took a pre-quiz on the unit. Next, the highlight, we made GOOP! Anticipation was high as they tried to predict what was going to happen with the water, cornstarch and bowl (I did add food coloring for a twist). We did go by the bathrooms to feel our experiment because I knew, from the past, Goop leaves a messy trail. When they tried to scoop up the Goop they exploded with laughter and oohhs and aahhhs. I knew it was a fantastic lesson on matter when several asked to do it again and some said they wanted to try it at home! Next experiment- Balloon Blow-Up!
