Science Fun

Before February break, my kids and I started Mrs. Durning-Leander's Fairy Tale's Matter Unit, which is just amazing (link can be found here) - What I love about this product is that it is full of experiments and fun hands-on activities for the kids.  There is also some fill in the blank and written activities, along with a study guide and assessment.
We used cheerios to visually see the different between the matter of a solid, liquid, and a gas.  They had so much fun doing this (and eating the cheerios afterwards!) Using experiments with your kids will help them remember the important information.  :) 
 They had the most fun with the infamous baking soda and vinegar experiment.  You really only need a little because when that balloon started to blow up, their eyes lit up the room.  They loved it and will forever remember that the solid and liquid they used, created a gas :)

We also had Hawaiian Day during our School Spirit Week, so I made a little snack up for the kiddies.  I used vanilla pudding, crushed graham crackers, and two swedish fish.  There were no little umbrellas at the store, I wish the kids would have even been more excited!  The fishies look funny "on the beach" and not in the water, but I just went with it and made up my own recipe ;)
 To go along with our Hawaiian theme, we used the wonderful Surf Buddies freebie from Surfin' Through Second.  Love her so much! Look how cute these turned out?!  If you do download and use this cute product, make sure you leave some feedback for the sweet Corinna!
I hope you are all having a great weekend!
