Carving apples

Mrs. Hoffman brought us some apples which we used to carve to make apple people.  We used a sharpened dowel to carve the facial features and add "googly" eyes.  We then put the apple on the dowel and we are letting them dry out.  By Halloween they should make some interesting creature heads for us to use to make witches or other ghouls.

States of matter

We have started a new and exciting school year!  Once again I have a class of awesome third graders!
In science, we start out the year studying states of matter.  We made "ooblick" in class and experimented with it to determine if it is a solid, liquid, or gas.  We know it's not a gas so we tried to decide if it was a solid or liquid.  It had properties of both so we couldn't decide.
