Week 10: Car boot sale

On Saturday we held our first ever car boot sale fundraiser. It was awesome seeing so many family and community members supporting our school.

Our class created slime and sold it for $2 per bag. Miss Fortes loves science and was so engrossed in the slime making process that she forgot to take photos of us making the slime.

However she did capture some of photos of us measuring the slime. We measured out the slime using electronic scales because we wanted to make sure each customer got the same amount of slime for $2 (50grams)

Here are a few snaps from the exciting event.

    I'm Rikki-Lee from Grey Main School. This is an amazing market if I went to your school the first thing I would buy was the slime. At our school we have something called PrEP where classes get into to different groups and make stuff kind off like you have done and sell it for money that kids design. Did all your slime sell?
