Avery Creates a New Science Term

Judy in Ohio talks about her granddaughter, Avery, who is doing Science K:

We were working on Lesson 33 talking about the mass and buoyancy of different items and seeing what would float. Later we reviewed and Avery sorted household items and toys putting all the buoyant ones in a group. Granddad Dave asked, “What do you know about the items in this group?” “They are buoyant,” said Avery. “Then what can you say about items in the other group?” Avery thought for a moment and offered, “They are girlant.”
