Have any of you been to www.stevespanglerscience.com?? I love his stuff and got a bunch at conference this year. These are polymer crystals that mysteriously grow into large gel-like material when added to water. We added water to the colored crystals then took pictures to document the growing process.....
Some of the comments this morning were
"It looks like ice"
"It's red ice!"
"But it's not cold like ice is cold"
"It feels like Jello"
"is it jello?"
So we talked and confered and discovered....then we blended. Each child will come home with a little vile of different colored crystals. Talk together about what happens to the colors....eventually it will become one color....
We are also watching what happens in class....coooool!!!
