Science Fun

I love it when the kids have FUN in science!! Today we had our first experiment in Science…and the kids loved it.  I loved it when Ryan looked at me and said “I love this Science Curriculum!”!!

They are learning about air pressure and how it applies to birds’ wings to help them fly.  So they took straws, cut a 1/2 inch off one end.  Holding the short end in a full glass of water, they used the long end of the straw to blow upwards at an angle.  The air pressure was stronger than the water and caused the water to spray out the top of the straw in the glass.

The kids had a blast and got the kitchen all wet as you can imagine!!!   We have to show dad this one when he comes home!!   What a great way to finish up our first week of HSing!
