Bubble Gum Fun!
First I gave my students some bubble gum (Double Bubble) and believe me, they were so excited! Then we chewed and CHEWED! I also put them into partners so they could practice blowing a bubble. You should have seen some of their faces... they were HILARIOUS and they looked like chipmunks!
Then we talked about some bubble blowing tricks. By this point, they were really into this writing activity and couldn't wait to get back to their own desks and begin writing down their own bubble blowing instructions. We also graphed who could and couldn't blow a bubble. I was worried some students would feel bad about not being able to blow a bubble, but they weren't. They were just excited to actually have gum and learn how!
