Hands on Learning

The 5th grade class at Glade Elementary has been busy learning the real meaning of “hands on learning” in science class. From exploring the Scientific Method by mixing different solutions and setting gummy bears inside the solutions, to eating Cell-O Jell-O while learning about plant and animals cells, the students have enjoyed their edible experiments. Most of the 5th grade students agree those experiments were awesome, but there was one that was a little “disgusting.” They had to get “elbow deep” in plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets, which was a mixture of kool-aid, cheerios, marshmallows, and skittles. The 5th grade class unanimously voted that the best part of these experiments were getting to eat the ingredients at the end.
