Jack-o-lanterns and Scaring Pepper

Mrs. Wiseman came on Friday to do a fun experiment with the class. We started with a bowl of water and added some pepper. The class observed that the pepper spread all over the surface of the water. Then they dipped a toothpick in dishwashing liquid and touched it to the water. The pepper was "scared" and all rushed to the sides of the bowl. Lots of oohs and aahs were heard!! Mrs. Wiseman explained that it was because of surface tension.

In the afternoon we had fun making some jack-o-lanterns from paper strips. Some were funny and some were pretty scary!!
