What are these?

What are these little balls?

We passed them around circle to explore up close. 

We placed them in shallow trays with water so that we could observe them up close. 

They began to change. 

The children noticed that the balls started to slowly grow in the water. They used rich vocabulary to describe their observations - fragile, bumpy, squishy, slippery - and played very carefully as the balls continued to change. 

We used scientific tools to help us gather more information. 

The clear ones were so hard to see and we noticed that as the balls grew they became bumpy!

Can you guess what they are?
