You might not know this, but your second grader has been stranded on a deserted island. We are going to be taking on some "what if" tasks to support our learning about states of matter and their properties.
The first task was to design a hat from various house hold items that would protect them from the sun on the island. Thinking about the properties of different materials, children had to tape together an arrangement of a hat. It was so much fun that even 7th/8th grade Science Teacher, Mr. Stenstrom stopped by!
