We were studying the Roman baths and homes. The wealthy often commissioned mosaics to be part of construction. It’s not often art makes itself immediately obvious to me…but I just so happened to remember I had these extra pieces of tissue cut up.
Cheap, fun, and the kids liked to snort and watch the tissue fly.
We’ve been using “Science for Every Kid: Chemistry” this year and I can’t say enough about the experiments. Aside from having to steal a balloon from church, I almost always have the supplies on hand.
Plus, who wouldn’t want to watch the kids try and try and try to prove their hypothesis right: “Mom, of COURSE the balloon will blow up enough to fill the bottle.”
Tell me that hypothesis again, dude.
