This past Tuesday at our homeschool group was Science Project Day. Here were our kids' projects.
Our 5-year-old daughter studied whether or not the shape of a blower would affect the shape of the bubble. It doesn't. All bubbles are still round!
Our 7-year-old son studied what dye combinations make which colors in Skittles and M&Ms.
Our oldest son tested different types of wood and found which wood needed more force to drive a nail through it. He made a hammering device that ensured equal amounts of force was used to hit the nail each time.
The nail went through redwood in 6 hits with the hammer. After 210 hits with the hammer, the nail had still only gone halfway through the oak piece of wood.
They all love hands-on projects!
