Science Fair

Tonight, was Andrew's Science Fair at his preschool. His class has been studying plants and butterflies.  

They also made mini volcanoes.

The boys fished with magnets...

and saw a huge shark made entirely from recycled materials.

They got to make their very own bubble bath.

Hand mixers helped to make more bubbles.

There was a large table filled with fun science gadgets to try.

Another table was filled with animal shells and skins to touch.

The boys used stamps to make animal tracks.

The boys had a great time. I was a little sad that it was our last Science Fair at that preschool.

Read a Book. Give a Book.

I just found out about this site through another blog. I can't believe I didn't know about it already. You can sign up (takes a couple seconds...honestly) and then read books on line. They have really good ones, too, like Skippyjon Jones! Each time you finish a book, you can then click on 'donate book' and that book will be sent to the charity of your choice. 
I just set up an account for the boys and me and am also going to set one up for  my classroom. What an amazing idea.

Oh! And here's the site
