Sroli: Abigail smell. Abigail garlic.
Abigail: Sroli smell it.
Sroli: Banana!
 We used aromatic soap to whisk up bubbles of sweet strawberry scent.
We used our noses to determine mystery smells. The most identifiable were coffee and cinnamon.
 We used cinnamon sticks to make "cinnamon people". Who knew sandpaper could smell so sweet?
 Our fresh batch of play dough smelled delicious! Just like sweet cherries.

We used our noses to determine which sample liquid we would taste.
No one was at all interested in sampling #1 (vinegar), in fact they all seemed to back away from it.
No one had a problem tasting sample #2 (grape juice).

While we enjoyed the many interesting scents in our classroom, we also began to remind ourselves of our very interesting holiday, Passover.
Morah Tzivie: Tell me what you remember of Passover. What is the Passover dinner called?
Dena: Seder.
Morah Tzivie: Do we soft challah at the Passover dinner?
Kian: No.
Morah Tzivie: What is the crunchy bread we eat?
Efraim: Matzah.
Morah Tzivie: How many cups of wine do we have at the Passover dinner?
Noam: 4
Morah Tzivie: What kinds of interesting foods do we eat?
Noah: Bitter Herbs.
Morah Tzivie: Does anyone know what Pesach means?
Josiah: Passover.
We sorted the dinner items and saw that Shabbat and Passover are very different but both share candles and a kiddush cup.
Shabbat tables were transformed to Seder tables.
We are all in the process of  creating a Seder plate to bring home to our families. 
We completed our week with a very important question,  Ma nishtanah ha-laylah ha-ze mi kol ha-leylot, and we look forward to the answer them next week as we learn more about why this holiday is so special.
