monday- bubbling wizard's brew
the old vinegar and baking soda trick
brody LOVED this experiment and was really upset later when i had to clean it up, so far our experiment success is 100%!
tuesday: sail cars
brody was soo excited to make these, and they were a total fail!! they took a really long time to make and the wheels wouldn't even stay on to roll. looks like our success rate dropped to 50%.
wednesday: zappy zoomer
these actually did fly well, if you flew them like a paper airplane. the precision was a little too precise for the little guy so he got a little frustrated and thus disenchanted with the results. success rate: 33%.
thursday: triangle tower
this worked great! it was interesting to see if the tower would and wouldn't hold the weight of the object. success rate increase: 50%! and as an additional bonus the little triangles work great as "garages" for hot wheels!
friday: salty dragon painting and spinning paper helicopter
we started out with some painting then sprinkling the wet paint with salt crystals. one really can't mess this one up so it was our easiest success. our rate's now at 60%
our spinning paper helicopters:
yes! it worked, both the flier and brody spin when dropped! That was our sixth and final experiment, and we had success 4 out of 6 projects, making our experiment success rate: 66%. yikes, that's a D (although it's not my first D grade before, world history is still loathe you!) Brody enjoyed the experiments and the change up during spring break, so maybe i can get an A for effort?
PS- all experiments were conducted during the twins naps and therefore all filming required whispering or soft voices, sorry for those hard of hearing.
