Today we made ghosts with glue, gauze, and a balloon. It was a great lesson in sequencing and following step by step directions. We soaked our gauze in glue and water, and then wrapped our balloon. After 24 hours we popped our balloons and our ghosts stood up all by themselves!

To bring our unit on Hispanic Heritage Month to a close we had a little fun making Day of the Dead Skulls out of crayon shavings. Students used vegetable peelers to shave crayons down. This was a great fine motor activity to strength hands and coordination. We used wax paper and an iron to melt our crayons.
