Science... with marshmallows!

The perfect science experiment. Spaghetti noodles, large and small colored marshmallows, and the Periodic Table of Elements. What a fun idea! This was the older kids lesson today, making molecules from marshmallows and spaghetti.

Here is water:

Then they had a chart of a few more to make:

The big kids got to work on what they thought propane, water, and other molecules would look like, and Logan and I made 'space ships' with ours (and of course, the space ships flew into our mouths too).

After a morning of being outside, and a wonderful school day this evening... I am beat, but it was a beautiful day.

Time for soup, baths, and bed.
