Now on to the fun!  We are learning to be scientists and how to use our 5 senses to observe.  In class we did this super fun experiment that I just had to share.  I showed them that if you put glitter in a bowl of water it will float. Then I showed them that if I dip my finger in some dish soap and then put my finger in the bow with the glitter, the glitter will scatter very quickly to the edges of the bowl.  We decide that we wanted to see if this would happen with other types of soap.  We tried shampoo, bar soap, hand sanitizer, and dish soap. Here are some pics of the kiddos in action:

The discovered that all the different types of soap that we tried had the same effect.  They all made the glitter scatter!

Your turn:  Have you found any super cute, fun, hands-on science experiments for your kiddos? I would love to hear from you!

On another note, I just added this FREEBIE to my store.  It is a formative math Assessment for inverse operations. Enjoy!
