Thoughtful Thursday
Science week hasn't felt like much of a difference. We're doing so many things we normally do--observing nature, volcano talk, etc. I feel like a one trick pony. I've been looking for new sources of wowee science projects.

We haven't had too much time at home to do projects, but tonight at a family dinner, we did this science experiment:

Take a wrapped straw and push the paper down so that it scrunches up as you expose the straw. remove the straw and place scrunched up wrapper on the table add a drop of liquid to one end and watch the wrapper straighten out.

We did that and shot paper wrappers to talk about pressure...well we talked about pressure for a second before it just became a hitting contest.

Don't worry, we clean up well and we're good tippers!
