It’s been a few days, so today, I have something really fun for you! Let’s start with a little story. Here is a condensed version of Dr. Seuss’ Book, Bartholomew and the Oobleck.
Now, if you want to make some of this….and I know you do, here’s a quick video to show you how. Please be advised, however,
Do NOT pour Oobleck down a sink, it will clog it!!!
I know it’s Monday and it may hurt to think, but this is a great puzzle. Give it a try and let me know how you did. I found it to be quite interesting!
Here’s a little giggle to get you ready for the weekend…

Here’s a large scale version…
I can’t believe it, here we are at our 2nd Friday of shelter-in-place. We’ve survived 2 weeks off school! Did you ever think you’d be saying that? I’m happy to be sharing some of the best mystery photos that were submitted from your classmates over the last week today. They are much better than mine! I’ll reveal the photographers tomorrow when I give the answers so that you all don’t hound them for the answer!
Submit your guesses in the comments below. If you took one of the photographs, email me your guesses so no one gets the correct answer from you! And of course, after you guess, go try and take a mystery photo of your own and send it my way!
Check back tomorrow for answers and a building challenge…and keep those mystery photos coming!
I loved talking with each of you this morning! Thanks for joining me! So, I just KNEW you missed my jokes! Here are a few to hold you over….
