Animals in Winter So right now in preschool we are learning about Animals in Winter.....I don't know why I always have so much fun with this theme!! Anyway, today for a science experiment, we discovered what it would feel like to be a Polar Bear swimming in the icy water (kind of). First, have each child put their bare hands in a bowl of freezing ice water. We like to count and see how long they can hold it in there (great counting practice). Every class I always get at least a couple of brave souls who leave their hand in there as long as they possibly can - I always stop them at 30!! Who knows how long they would actually leave it in there - crazy kids!!
Pour enough milk in the dinner plate to completely cover the bottom to the depth of about 1/4 inch. Allow the milk to settle. Add one drop of each of the four colors of food coloring - red, yellow, blue, and green - to the milk. Keep the drops close together in the center of the plate of milk. Find a clean cotton swab for the next part of the experiment. Predict what will happen when you touch the tip of the cotton swab to the center of the milk.

Start your column by pouring the honey into the cylinder. Now, you will pour each liquid SLOWLY into the container, one at a time. It is very important to pour the liquids slowly and into the center of the cylinder. Make sure that the liquids do not touch the sides of the cylinder while you are pouring. It’s okay if the liquids mix a little as you are pouring. Density Tower - Magic with Science | Experiments | Steve Spangler Science

make ice cream in a bag This summer we have been making ice cream in a bag. It will be a classic for us. I am even thinking of taking it on the road this fall when we camp on an primitive island - if I can sacrifice the ice. This is so simple. The biggest tips I would like to share are:
Kids in Growing Plants Growing a cutting can be fun too. I recommend Fuchsia's or Geraniums as they are easy to grow. Firstly get a cutting by taking a section of non-flowering stem and cut it free with a clean knife from just below a leaf joint. Remove the leaves immediately above the cut.
