Students were given 6 mystery liquids to observe and make an educated guess about the identity of each. They needed to use their 4 senses(no tasting!) we are working on using descriptive adjectives in our observations. Many of them guessed honey for the corn syrup.
We have been reading the many different versions of Stone Soup all week. One of the many themes was how by sharing we make ourselves richer. Thank you to everyone that was able to share ingredients for our Stone Soup (on such short notice). The first grade did a fantastic job preparing it. They all wrote their own recipes to share. Then during our fun Friday activity we shared it with the second graders.

Investigating deer remains!
They identified many of the bones!
We found a stray bone on the path. They hypothesized that a coyote had carried it away from where the deer had died.
The final descent is always the most fun.
