The Lemonade War

Middle School students Austin Holt and Sloane Lipson read the book The Lemonade War by Jacqueline Davies, a book about a brother and sister who have a 'lemonade war,' each trying to earn the most money at their lemonade stand. The students thought it would be fun to create their own lemonade stand and give lemonade to teachers as a thank you. They also shared information about the book they read and fun facts about lemons.

Magnetic Slime

Middle School science students created "magnetic slime" by adding iron filings into a slime recipe that includes glue and starch. They used magnets to explore the magnetic properties of the slime and found that when a magnet was placed near a ball of slime, the slime reached out and engulfed the magnet, surrounding it completely.
