Can bubbles fold? Spin? Split? Stack? Our first day with bubble solution allowed students to freely explore these questions, using only their hands as bubble wands. Older students predicted what they thought bubbles could or couldn't do, but younger students plunged straight into the solution. After clean up, students reviewed what they noticed as they played. Interestingly, without telling them what things to try, the younger students actually tried many of the Bubble Card topics on their own, and the joy on their faces as they experimented was glowing enough to blind!
Pierce afterschool instructor Roberta blew some HUGE bubbles, and then worked with struggling students to stretch, divide, and manipulate the bubbles.
