This Week

I kinda missed week 2 there but between everything going on at home and the lousy phone pictures I wasn’t feeling that inspired, you know?  This week though, I’m back in the saddle though there’s still no word on spy cam.

This week we explored gelatin in the water table.  On the first day the children explored the texture of plain gelatin.  On the second day we upped the ante with colored gelatin and some kitchen tools for squishing.  The children continued to explore texture and had fun with color and manipulating the kitchen tools.

I’ll admit that a small part of what drives my plans for our special projects is mess factor.  I give an extra point or two to projects that would be total suicide at home.  How *do* you get jello out of carpet?
