Shapes and Bubbles

My coworker had these super cool 3D bubble wands.

We did a little math(shapes) and science(matter) today.  We talked about the shape of a bubble wand being a circle and the shape that it creates is a circle but what happens if we change the shape of the wand. The students created different shapes with pipe cleaners and then used them as their bubble wands. We talked about the different stages of matter when we were done.
The students had a lot of FUN with this. I heard numerous times that this was the best day ever!
