End of the year tests are over, text books are all turned in and lockers have been cleaned out. We are in the final days.
When one of the science teachers begged out of the watermelon squish and I was asked if I wanted to take her place, I figured why not.
So my classes spent Friday out on the lawn wrapping rubber bands around watermelons until the exploded. Messy fun. And science, logic and planning involved.
Only one of my 6 classes won the race and exploded their watermelon before any of the science classes. But even the losers had fun spiking their rubber band wrapped watermelons on the ground and watching them explode. Plus, they got to eat whatever parts were still edible.
The end of the school year may be stressful at times, but they also have their fun times.
