taken from this book:
hands on earth science activities for k-6 by marvin tolman
we took some straws.
we learned what happens when you combine the two and various ways of holding them.
this of course led to further experimentation with jack o lantern making supplies and the leftover potato......
we also watched a rocket video from Supercharged Science. We are part of their summer e-camp. It was "really cool mommy". Supercharged science does a really good job at even helping kindergarten/grade 1 students understand higher science as well. All that fire made a super impression on the lad. These things helped a lad keep occupied on a day he needed quieter things to amuse himself due a headachy mommy and a sick tummy on a lad.
