Convection Currents in Water

Yesterday we saw convection currents in the air working with our teabag experiment.  Today we conducted an experiment with water.  We heated the water on one side of the container with a cup of boiling water and chilled the water on the opposite side with blue ice cubes.  Watch what happens!

Flying Teabag!

Last week we learned all about convection currents.  We conducted an experiment today, to see what would happen if you lit an empty teabag on fire.  See for yourself …

Do you know what makes the teabag fly up to the ceiling?

Winter Landscape Art

I hope everyone had a wonderful winter break. Our first week back we made these beautiful winter pictures.  Some of us even brought in what we learned about the northern light for the background.  These took us three days, one day for the tissue paper trees, another for the watercolored background, and a third to glue the trees and paint snow.  They look amazing!
