Out With the Old In With the New

I've been back for two weeks now. In the first week as many people know, my group "plant life" did the handy garden activity. We kept getting the same groups and they didn't want to do the handy garden anymore so we decided to come up with a different activity that would be interesting to the visitors and ourselves. We wanted them to learn but have fun as well. We desided to make the new topic about matter and the states of matter. Now we are making, what we call "Mystery Matter." It is made up of cornstarch and water to show two different states of matter liquid and solid. If you press your finger into the mix slowly its a liquid, but if you press your fingure in the mix as fast as you can you'll see that it acts like a solid. It's a fun activity and the visitors seem to be enjoying it as well as my teammates!
