My Bubblegum Science Bulletin and DIY Science Lab Coats!

Ok, so I know last Friday I posted about my BUBBLEGUM SCIENCE EXPERIMENT and most of you have already seen it.
I shared this new experiment with my First grade team members and they ALL did it! One of them has already hung the craftivity/cloze activity and it made the cutest bulletin board. I thought I would share it with you:

I think her little Firsties did a FABULOUS job! :)
Now, since it is FRIDAY science time, I thought I'd share what my little Scientists worked on today.
I'm sure lots of you have seen these DIY lab coats before:

I love how EASY this sharpie or marker and a white T-shirt!
I completely forgot my camera today, so I can't show you the finished product from my class, but I can tell you what we did and post the picture later! :)
I had each student bring in one white cotton pillowcase. I helped the students cut out the neck line, arm holes, and then cut straight down the front so it opened like a jacket.
Then, the students added their pocket with their name (using black sharpie), and buttons down the center. They also drew on a collar.
I tried looking online to find an example of a Lab coat like the ones my class made, but couldn't find any! Can you believe that?!? lol....SO, again...picture will come later.
BUT, while I was looking, I found these and thought this would be a cute idea to give at a Science themed party, or at the beginning of the year during one of your first Science lessons! Maybe when you are going over tools that scientists use??? Not sure, but they are ADORABLE!

OH, and before I forget....if you haven't checked out Curious Firsties yet, be sure to go check them out! They are new to the blogging world and have some awesome ideas! Go see them and let them know I sent you :)

    Learning Is Something to Treasure
