Showtunes and Salt

Today in Geometry we started our “salt” activity.

My kids were doing really good work. They were surprised by the results and then were using their intuition and logical skills to make prediction and then pour salt on various shapes t see what results. Tomorrow we tie much of this together. But it was nice seeing them work together. And while they were working, I put on showtunes. I started with Sound of Music and let the playlist roll! I loved that some kids knew some of them (like Gypsy! and My Fair Lady!). Although our room was hot, and we couldn’t have the fans on because it would have blown the salt around, my kids worked judiciously throughout the entire 90 minute block! Go them!

  1. I’m curious about the salt project for my Geometry class. Are there instructions I can find somewhere? So glad I found your blog! It’s excellent! Please keep writing.
