Some elementary school students in Albemarle County had a day full of hands-on lessons. Second-graders at Baker-Butler Elementary School celebrated ‘Matter Day' in their classrooms Friday with a handful of projects.

The experiments included making glue out of milk and putting a toothpick of soap into colored milk to watch the liquids separate. Teachers and students say that the Matter Day activities make learning fun.

Baker-Butler second-grade student Juhi Naik said, "You don't even know that you're learning because you're having so much fun."

Baker-Butler teacher Lisa Harman said, "Matter Day has them rotating to six different stations where they are reviewing the concepts in a really fun way and we find they do very well when we assess them after something like this."

A University of Virginia professor also came later in the day to give students a presentation on dry ice.

This is the 10th year Baker-Butler Elementary has held this day as a culmination of the science unit.
