Elementary Students Love Hands-On Science Club

In honor of Spring, Science Club is experimenting with bunny Peeps! Students were tasked with choosing a name for their bunny as well as deciding on the type of "bath" to give their marsh mellow friend. Groups chose from a variety of liquids for their "Peep bath" and then made predictions about how the liquid and marsh mellow bunny would react after a week long soak.  Liquid choices included soda, vinegar, color water, shaving cream and salt water.  We have experimented with all of these liquids this year in Science Club and many students made connections to previous activities while discussing their predictions. Next week, students will check the results of their "Peep bath" to see how the various liquids and marsh mellows reacted!
