We got back last night from my birthday get-away to Mankato (and homeschool swimming on the way home!) and I’m still playing catch-up.
In the meantime, here are a few really fantastic looking science ideas that caught my eye lately!
Eclectic Chica has a tutorial on how to make these fabulous little felt geodes. What a fun way to expand on a rock study unit (which is funny for me to say, because life is a rock study unit around here!).
This simple design for launching ping pong balls is online at Hub Pages and looks like something my gang would eat up. Alex already makes everything into catapults. I have a feeling even more small objects are going to be launched in my downstairs area soon! (Thanks Laura!)
The Elephant Toothpaste Experiment
Okay, the elephant toothpaste experiment is really just filler, because I really found TWO fabulous science things to try but Two Fabulous Science Projects! just sounded a bit lame.
But it is a fabulous science project, and if you haven’t done it yet then you’re just really dropping the ball, folks. No offense intended, of course, it’s just so marvelously fun that you really ought to. We may do it again tomorrow, just because it is that fun.
What’s on your science radar lately?
