Here's how we spent last Friday during the inservice with Club 4/5 - having messy fun!
Here, Jasbir has shown the kids how to make "snow". She gave them each a paper plate with some shaving cream. Add in baking soda, mix it up, then pour on the vinegar and watch the snow expand!

Here's what they had to say when I asked them to describe what the Ooblek felt like:
