Erupting Rainbows and Pots of Gold!

What a busy day! We started it off with a really fun science activity in which we made an erupting rainbow! Mrs. Burns added food dye to the bottom of cups and covered it with baking soda before we arrived. When we got to our stations we found 7 cups with white powder in each one. We talked about the colors of the rainbow, identified each color and then got our experiment going! Our first mystery cup ended up being red! Each of us had a chance to discover what color was in each cup while watching an eruption. 

Later we did a fun journal activity and answered the question, "What would you do if you found a pot of gold?"

What Would You Do If You Found A Pot of Gold?
Later we were asked just that! We all had some pretty creative answers! Check them out!

Plus we found more evidence for our Leprechaun case! Leprechaun glitter EVERYWHERE! We have to be close to catching one!
