The Calm before the Storm?

I expected my students to return from Thanksgiving, well, all hyped in anticipation of the holidays. Not true. They've been calm, focused and completely pleasant! It's another thing to be thankful for!

Dodger, the Elf on the Shelf, popped in yesterday. The kiddos have been excited to guess where he'll be next. He surely can think of some creative places and poses! He is smart; he places himself high enough to ensure that his magic stays intact. Little hands can't reach the LCD projector!

We've been working on our study of states of matter. As you can see from the photo, it's messy, but so much fun! The children are doing a great job of working cooperatively. 

In this experiment, students are exploring what happens when two solids are mixed. They had to figure out how to separate the gravel and kosher salt, once they were combined. There were some very crafty problem solvers. Tomorrow features mixing liquids with solids. Messy? Yes. Engaging? Absolutely!

Happy Wednesday!
