The Fantastic Work of Dr Seuss

The books of Dr Seuss were our inspiration for our Mountaineers Discovery session this week. 
Lots of Dr Seuss reading.

 Catching doughnuts with our Horton trunks - we borrowed this game from the toy library.

Imaginary play with Horton Hears a Who elephant ears.

Truffula trees from The Lorax. I used powdered tempura paint to colour our cotton wool balls.

Cutting and gluing practice with stripy cat hats from The Cat in The Hat.

'at' words on cat hats - from Cat in The Hat.

 Bean The Lorax truffula tree planting.

Great sensory play with oobleck from Bartholomew and the Oobleck. 
 Oobleck (or gloop) is a non-newtonian fluid - it hardens when pressure is applied to it. That means it is both a liquid and a solid.

Watch this clip to see how you can make your own Oobleck and learn about the science behind it.
