This is our first five senses science journal entry.
#1: Pop Rocks and Water
They enjoyed listening to and watching the Pop Rocks in the water, which also resulted in a little taste test as well.
#2: Skittles and Water
The S from the Skittles are supposed to float to the top of the water. That's not how it worked out, but the kids enjoyed it regardless.
#3: Dancing Raisins
This was one of their favorites. The raisins really danced.
#4: Walking Water
This one takes a little more time to get to the final result, but it's cool nonetheless.
#5: Pencils in a Bag
This really does work, and the kids thought it was amazing.
The words simple, inexpensive, meaningful, and effective come to mind. If you're interested in trying any of these experiments, click on the pictures. They'll take you to the directions. I'm glad I finally figured out that my scientists can learn about their five senses while actually using them.
