I decided to use ketchup bottles instead of pouring it.
The finished wet product was pretty awesome looking.
The finished dry product was, well, just a black block. Using only tempera paint is obviously NOT the key to this project.
Did we consider it a failure because they dried looking awful?
Of course not.
Because we learned about cause and effect, gravity, color mixing, texture, and more. We used our creativity and imagined blueberry castles and rainbow rockets, ice cream volcanoes and strawberry mountains.
