Okay, not really a case of weird science. Just a little humorous story from our studies yesterday. I just couldn’t resist using the phrase as a title.
I know I’ve already said it – School has been keeping us busy lately. And a lot of the learning has been very fun! In science, my 5th grader is learning about salinity, oceans and ocean life. Yesterday, we were doing an experiment related to salinity. My 2 oldest boys were sitting at the table as I gathered up the needed materials for the assignment. We were going to add salt and food color to water and see what happened if we mixed water with different levels of salt in them.
I had set a glass of water, that I had been drinking, on the table while I got out the salt and food color. I hear the boys chanting “Science is cool! Science is cool!” and turn to see them stirring my drinking water with their plastic eye droppers…
Silly boys, lol. But how neat to have them excited to do something educational. Love that! What’s not to love about mixing colorful waters together? And the added bonus of playing in someone’s drink has to count for something, doesn’t it? 😉
Have a great day!
