The fierce March (and April) winds inspired us to focus on, and experiment with the force of air and gravity. We made flubber and watched air bubbles emerge when the flubber was stretched over a cup. We made spinning wheels, parachutes and kites. Blowing up and playing with balloons led to many interesting discoveries and discussions.

Baked Beans and Pinwheels


We set our pinwheels out in the wind. Next week parachutes and kites. These brisk, breezy days are great for our experiments with the wind.
