Earth Day 2009: Earth Day activities for this year included making masks from recycled cereal boxes, making paper machee Earths, reading "The Lorax," decorating Earth cupcakes and a Wall-E cake, and planting seeds in cups for the kids to take home and plant in their own gardens.
Some fun at-home activities. Today, Taliesin and Nathanael have been in the mood to read and build. We've been studying from A Child's First Library of Learning: Science Starter. We've talked about everything fom the atmoshphere to how water has currents and, as pictured here below, how light separates into colors (Also had to build a rainbow out of Legos, of course). The top picture is of Nathanael playing in beans. LOL. He wanted to see what would happen if he peeled them. We had just talked about why golf balls will soar farther than a smooth ball (has to do with the dimples), so, of course, when he saw the little indent inside of the bean, he was pretty excited. :^) The middle picture of the blue and red blocks represents cold air and hot air to show how a tornado forms, of course.
