Fun New Links for Kids

Sharing with you today a list full of fun links for kids!  Games, math, typing skills, internet safety, science experiments, art - all kinds of good stuff to keep them busy and make learning fun.

An experiment we did for a 3rd grade science project - how much salt does it take to float an egg to the top.  The Princess added one tablespoon of salt to the water at a time and marked with a sharpie how deep the water was and where the bottom of the egg was after each tablespoon of salt was added.  On a poster board she made a graph and taped a baggie full of the amount of salt we needed to float the egg to the top.  She taped the dried empty cup showing the measurements to the poster board as well and wrote her question, theory and hypothesis on the board.  It was an A+ earner.  :)

FUN!
What a great experiment...We will have to do this one, too!

We've done this several times. My son also tried it with hot water, cold water, and almost freezing water. He had a lot of fun with it, even though really he's quite old for this particular experiment (nearly 14).

Oh I love the idea about changing the water temps - thanks for sharing!

I loved doing these types of experiments. And I just learned something new (or something I forgot - not sure which). Thank you for linking up to Mommy Teaches Friday Blog Hop. Blessings from Croatia: A Little R & R: www.littlerandr.org
