Today at the FPL we went on with our mad scientist experiments. This week we concentrated on the human body. I’d say the favorite experiment was the one that involved three pots of water, one ice cold, one hot and one room temperature. Each kid had a turn standing with one hand in cold one hand in hot, then plunged both hands in the room temperature water. Each hand had its own opinion of the temperature of the water. Dee Dee and Zion both needed to experience the sensation many times–water dripped off their elbows.
We did experiments in hand, eye and foot dominance. We were a most skewed group. We had two ambidextrous kids, two lefties, and when we did eye dominance, Miss Kary seemed to have no dominant eye.
The taste without smell experiment was not as successful. No one had any trouble distinguishing the potato from the apple. What surprised me was Corrin asking for seconds on the raw potato.
And then we held our breaths with Ray’s photo timer running–and I won!
Our beloved volunteer, Miss Jennifer, joined us via SKYPE being about thirteen months pregnant.
Miss Genia made the world’s largest chocolate chip cookie on a pizza pan and we ate it. Another fine day at the Front Porch Library.
The library will rest for the next two weeks while Ray and I go north to hang out with our grandson–and then we will be back!
