We saw many liquids from layers from dense to least dense: honey, corn syrup, maple syrup, milk, dish soap, water, oil, and rubbing alcohol (from bottom to top). And then we saw objects float in the middle of these liquids: a metal bolt in the honey, a die in the corn syrup, popcorn kernels in the milk, a tomato in the water, a soda cap in the oil, and a ping pong ball in the rubbing alcohol.
Did you know that we are only 32 days away from being big second graders? Crazy right! Today we finished a wonderful read aloud book called The Year of Billy Miller written by one of our favorite authors Kevin Henkes. He usually writes picture books like Chrysanthemum and Lily's Purple Plastic Purse. It was fun to see his style and the patterns in his writing in chapter book form. Anyways, this book was all about a boy in second grade. We spent some time writing about what we are most excited about and nervous about for next year.
Also...it snowed today. Send back SNOW PANTS, HATS, AND MITTENS please. It's cold outside.
