Slimy Science lessons

The lower school science classes have been enjoying lots of hands-on learning this month. First grade were challenged to design and build seasonal apple rafts while discussing what sinks and what floats with some interesting results! They also made slime while learning how it helps animals - a snail has slime to help stick to a tree branch, a lizard has slime called venom, and people have slime called mucus which contains germs and when you blow your nose you get rid of those germs! Students described the slime and were able to see where the slime would stick. Great ways to learn while having fun!
