#4- we have studies simple machines, and we even made our own simple machines out of licorice, pretzels, tootsie rolls, graham crackers, mints, and cookies
#5- we have picked our book characters that we will be writing a paper about to go along with our pumpkins (I can't wait to see how those turn out)
#6- we had our first AR party (making slime, slime pies, silly string slime, and treats...it was a BLAST)
