i made rootbeer playdough (regular playdough with root beer extract added).  it looked a lot like poop.  i admit i had fun tricking preschoolers…ask if you have one…

we did a rolling experiment with surprising results.  the only thing we could find in the room that would roll with lifting the board one inch was a heavy wooden peg person.  so surprising!
