Pop Rock Fun!

After using our descriptive minds to describe the gift bags, I decided to challenge my first grade friends.  I gave each of them some Pop Rocks.  This was very fun to watch their faces as some of them experienced the "explosion" in their mouth for the first time.  Take a look...

When they finished the "Pop Rock fun" I asked them to describe what they experienced while they ate the pop rocks.  I recorded their descriptive words on the chart below.

The Pop Rocks exploded in my mouth like...
(Below are their answers)
On Friday we reviewed similes and descriptive words.  Then during writing they recorded their findings and added a little art to it.  
It was a "Pop Rocking Fun Week!"

Take a look at our Pop Rock Art---
