Wacky Science!!

Wacky Science Day 2012!!!

During the last week of school first graders spent the day as wacky scientists.  It was a day filled with excitement, fun, mess and lots oohs and ahhs!  The wacky scientists experimented with slime, fizzing potions, poked polymers and all sorts of other wild and wacky experiments.

Good thing the teachers practiced first, ha!

Click here if you would like to sample one of the experiments.
And for the real deal click on the Wacky Science cover to check out the whole unit on TPT.  

Love the Mentos explosion from Deanna's Simple Science Volume 1 (if you're a Reading Street teacher you'll love the pig experiment too)!


  1. Jamie,

    That looks like so much fun! I am going to keep this in mind for science next year. :-)


  2. We all had so much fun! Thanks for the comment :)

  3. I love this idea for the end of the year! You have such cute ideas.
