We’re going to find the best bubble recipes, and a really easy way to explain surface tension! What better way is there to learn about surface tension and water molecules than by playing with bubbles? Kat and I have been having a lot of fun exploring the different ways that liquids interact with each other, and the reactions that can take place. This time, we decided to explore surface tension by learning about how bubbles work! Even better, we’ve taken our lesson to the park and have invited the other kids to come along and learn with us!Read More →

This week, Kat and I have been studying the various stages of matter! Today, we focused primarily on properties of matter, and ways that you can distinguish between them. We began by asking the question, what is density? Density is a measurement of mass, or the relative heaviness of an object with a constant volume. Simply put, density is a measure of how much “stuff” is in something. That “stuff” pertains to atoms and molecules, which make up the mass of an object. For example, in a liquid, the molecules are loosely “hanging out”. Kat and I demonstrate this by clasping our hands closely together,Read More →
