I didn’t get to have this “hands-on” type experience in school, so I’m really glad my kids are getting to see science in action! And I’m enjoying it, too. 🙂
I apologize for sharing so many of these redundant science experiment posts. My blog’s first purpose is to keep in touch with friends and family far away, so I try to share news from our lives. I realize the average person probably thinks that it’s just…well, boring. Pretty soon I will be caught up, and Lord willing, I will have more to share with the general public. In the meantime, thanks for reading.
Here are a few more of Mitchell’s science projects:
He made an amorphous solid. If he hit it with his fist, it was hard, but if he touched it gently, it would melt and run down his hands. It is, indeed, very odd.
We took a video of it, and it’s available HERE.
Another day, he made lava “lamps”.
Another time, he blew up a balloon using the gas created from a soda pop and pop rocks! It was his idea to draw the face on the balloon.
Oh, and now he has a hat!
