Mother’s Day is this Sunday which means we needed to make something sweet for our moms!
We are finishing up a fun unit on Matter! I teach at a Core Knowledge school and make up all my own Science and Social Studies units. Matter is always my favorite because it’s SO hands on! So far we have played with water balloons, soda, ice, and more. With Mother’s Day right around the corner, I decided to mix Matter with a cute idea for our moms. We’ve been talking about the changes in states of matter and how temperature can effect them. Then I found an idea on Lansdowne Life where you can melt crayons into candy molds and decided to give it a try. We had the same issue with the sides curling that Erin described in her post, but it didn’t stop us from making 22 crayons.
