Science Magic

Poppins Book Nook

To the Lab! is this month's Poppins Book Nook theme, C loves science experiments so she was thrilled!  At the library we chose two books for our theme, Amelia Bedelia, Rocket Scientist? by Herman Parish and It's Not Magic, It's Science by Hope Buttitta.  Amelia Bedelia books are always fun and this one did not disappoint.  Amelia volunteers at the local science fair and silliness ensues.  Two of our experiments were inspired directly by the book.  

First, we tried to see if we could get anything to float using our hair dryer.  We had plenty of things fly up and quickly fall down.  We couldn't get anything to stay above the stream of air for more than a second.  A few years ago, we tried this with ping pong balls, they work well but we didn't have any this time.  We still had fun!

Then we explored a bit with vinegar and baking soda.  This fun chemical reaction never gets old!  She decided to use red food coloring so it would look like lava. 

After our vinegar and baking soda fun, we looked through the It's not Magic, It's Science! book to find something new to try.  C picked the ice fishing activity, she thought it looked like great fun to pick up ice with string.  It worked perfectly!

We had so much fun exploring science with this theme!  Be sure to visit the other participating bloggers to see what they were up to this month.
