The Wonders of Gleup!

Symsonia kids boards Ky Ag Mobile Center

Symsonia Elementary fourth grade teacher Holly Veucasovic smiles as three of her students, from left, Clay Mills, Rilee Medlin, and Tanner Gregory warily begin the process of making Gleup. Other students in the back grin as they enjoy further steps in the process of making the Silly Putty-like substance from polymers. Veucasovic said, “In science class, we’re studying matters – solids, liquids, and gases. So, we’re doing activities related to those concepts.” Mixing the starter Gleup, at right, is Graves County High School graduate Jason Hodge, coordinator of the Kentucky Department of Agriculture Mobile Activity Center. Hodge, now a resident of Hodgenville, travels the commonwealth tying agriculture products and their uses into science core content curriculum. The students also conducted experiments focusing on soil erosion and plant germination.
