|Testing the capillary pathway of a paper towel.|
|And the paper...|
|Here's my youngest using my hand lens (from my college Botany class!). He is trying to discover why a paper towel has more capillary action. (It has more open space for the water to travel to.)|
|Here's a closer look at the paper towel/paper before they were dipped into the drop of water.|
And a closer look at my old hand lens. It even still has the braided "bracelet" I made from college days on it.
How very granola of me (hehe!).
|Recording answers and observations in the Science Notebook.|
(Along with an additional, "extra" experiment involving a paper towel and blue food coloring.)
|The contest was to come up with an addition to "Jabba's Palace". My 14-yr.-old created a hangar.|
|This is the place out back where everyone hangs out until their aircraft is ready.|
|Check out the girl with the purple hair!|
|Look through the door and you can see the waiting area.|
|We did sandpaper rubbings.|
|My great co-teacher is telling the story to a little girl as she draws the pictures.|
(This also makes a GREAT quiet activity for preschoolers for church services, etc!)
|Painting a leaf...|
|Pressing it onto the paper...|
|Added a few finishing touches...|
