If I have said it once, I have said it 1000 times…
She is AMAZING and can teach about chemistry and science like NO OTHER!!!
And by no other….I mean ME!
I am THANKFUL everyday for technology. I love being able to hop on the internet and within seconds have a science cartoon and an experiment. SWEET!…especially on a rainy Monday morning!
THAT is exactly what happened THIS morning.
It was Monday….I was not ready YET, so I put on Magic School Bus episode called “Ready, Set, Dough”.
It is all about how baking IS chemistry.
What kids doesn't like a CHEMICAL reaction?
So while they were watching the episode I got all the stuff for muffins out…
We did a small experiment with baking soda and milk and the difference it makes when barely mixing(lots of foaming bubbles) an mixing a lot(hardly any bubbles).
Then we made chocolate chip muffin,taking the time to mix MOST of the batter barely…and the last bit A LOT.
Then we waited…..
The top muffin was the one mixed A LOT…it was more dense.
The bottom was less mixed …less dense.
We love science.
And we certainly don’t mind chocolate chip muffins!!!!!
