A STICKY SITUATION In DLP Science

December 5, 2014

In DLP Science, the students have been studying edible plants and trees.  This led us to the chicle trees of Guatemala and Mexico. 

We learned that the chicle tree is the source for gum base.  We contacted the manufacturer of "GLEE GUM."  They sent our class 80 pieces of gum and a gum making kit.  We will be making our own homemade gum and hoping for some chewy goodness!  We may even finish our study of gum with a bubble-blowing contest.
