Rain, Rain, Go Away...

Outdoor green recess had to be cancelled due to rain.  (Valerie and Marisol took kids to collect puddle water earlier!)  Lucky the green studio was free for indoor green recess.

Kids have been testing sinkers and floaters during work time back in their classrooms.  This time we asked students to change a sinker into a floater...or a floater into a sinker.

We usually do this later in the year. We noticed that rubber banding things together was a little more difficult.

But the kids' focus seemed similar.  This sinker rock now floats? 

Or are the cup floaters sinking?

This student put a sinking rock together with two cork floaters.

Students will be trying out other ideas back in the classroom during work time.
