Magic Wands
Old 11-15-2005, 04:28 PM
 

I use magic wands (5th grade) to show the states of matter. At the local pet store they sell clear plastic tubing that I think is used for fish tanks. I buy a length of that and have my husband cut it into 8 inch sections. I take that part to school. Then I help students cool glue a cork into one end of it. Next, we put in some glitter and sparkly confetti. To that we add some water so that the tube is about 75% full. Then we cool glue another cork into the open end so that the tube is safely sealed...Voila, a magic wand that shows solids, liquids and gasses! It comes out looking really cool, and with Harry Potter coming out, most of my class was really psyched to make these!
