Week of May 17th

This week 4th grade is all about Harry Potter. As we read about potions and magical creatures, we have done our own experiments. Students were sorted into their prospective houses by doing a liquid and acid reaction "potion" to learn their house color. Students also defied matter by making Oblek which turns out to be both a liquid and a solid!
