We have been learning about states of matter in Science. Today, Mrs. Cassidy came in to talk with the class about the different states of matter. She also did an experiment with us. We learned about a non-newtonian fluid called Oobleck. It has properties of both liquids and solids.

We also celebrated Read Across America Day! We read the book "And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street" and discussed what it means to exaggerate. Then the class tried their hand at exaggerating the things they see on their way home from school. Check out a few examples below.
