My Mum is a fantastic science teacher, and when she was here she kindly offered to have a "Science Lab" for my kids and some of the other homeschoolers who were interested.
No, that is not a homeschooler she's holding, it's our rabbit, Paganini.
Mum sets up "stations" where a small group of 4-5 kids learn a certain thing about the science topic, which in this case was weather.
Bernoulli Wind Bags, which was a huge hit with the kids.
While the adults figured out what we were supposed to be doing, we kicked the kids outside to the back yard to experience "Weather" first hand.
It was for scientific purposes.
This was an experiment that we tried to do with barometric pressure, but for some odd reason the straws didn't want to co-operate, despite the best efforts of Tonya and Andrea.
It was a chaotic but fun afternoon learning a little bit about part of God's wonderful creation!
