She had a great lesson about facts and opinions. The kids really got into the book. You should have seen their excitement when they found out they would have a chance to test out the bubble blowing capabilities of various types of gum.
We partnered up the kids and everyone got a baggie with four different types of gum: mint chewing gum, Hubba Bubba, two gumballs and Dubble Bubble (the rectangular one). There was also a recording sheet for each student. We went over the rules of having gum in the classroom and a quick tutorial on how to blow a bubble.
Then we blew bubbles!
And we recorded our findings.
I wish you could see all the pictures I took that day and the eyes on the kids' faces. Some of the best pictures were when the kids didn't know how to blow a bubble and were trying really hard. We had a blast!
Here is a recording sheet that you can use with this activity:
I have it as a freebie on Tpt. I've also included different sheets depending on how many types of gum you use.
