As second grade students prepared for Winter Break, they read the book How the Grinch Stole Christmas, including several lessons and activities in math, ELA, and science. The students really enjoyed looking at what might have given the Grinch the feelings that he had to steal Christmas from Who-ville. In science, students in Mr. Manns and Mrs. Walker’s class demonstrated how to grow the Grinch’s heart. In groups, students used a red sharpie and drew a small heart on a green balloon. They explored what happens when white vinegar and baking soda is added to the balloon.
