Spangler Science, Math Fun, and Spring LINKY!

Today was a wonderful day in my class! I love Fridays because we ALWAYS do an experiment/investigation during our Science time. Today I took some inspiration from Steve Spangler Science and used his "jelly marbles" to teach students all about HYDRATING. They had a blast!

I have a lesson printable that I made, but I forgot to send it from my school, next week, I'll be sure to upload that as a freebie for you guys! It goes great with this Steve Spangler activity.
Oh, and if you want to buy the "jelly marbles"'s the same thing as Orbeez that they sell at Walmart or Target. See a picture of them HERE!

I also tried a new math activity this morning that I found on Tammy's blog 1..2..3..Teach with Me!

The students had so much fun learning a new strategy to add three numbers. Check her blog for step by step directions and free printables.

It's SPRING TIME...time to GET LINKY! I have linked up with Mrs. Lirette's Learning Detectives for a SPRING themed Linky Party! Are you in the mood to shop and browse Spring themed products, games, and activities??? Head on over to Mrs. Lirette's and take time to blog stalk! :)
