The Eagles had a lot of fun getting their hands dirty. Inman Elementary 1st graders enjoyed a hands-on experiment making oobleck as part of their celebration of all things Dr. Seuss.
During Read Across America Week, 1st graders read and completed a full slate of activities related to books written by Dr. Seuss, and that included making the namesake goop from “Bartholomew and the Oobleck.” Oobleck is both a solid and a liquid, and students created the sticky slime-like substance that rains down from the sky in the book while discussing the story elements from the setting of the Kingdom of Didd.
“I hope students remember what it was like to create something from a story they read in class and also that it’s okay to be thankful for some old-fashioned things like the rain, the sun, the fog, and snow,” said 1st grade teacher Kim Baxter. “We can find fun in it all.”
