|"What is 'density', PopPop???"|
|"I'm going to see which of these is the heaviest...|
I mean...the densest."
|The labeling begins.|
|"I'll start with Dawn."|
|"Corn syrup will be good to measure."|
|"Perhaps a little Crisco would be good."|
|"These are my choices."|
|"Now comes the weighing."|
|"Would you explain this to me PopPop?"|
|"We will weigh each liquid in grams to see|
which is the densest."
|"I'll write down how many grams each weighs."|
|"Ta da!!!" They are in order from|
lightest to heaviest!"
|"This is sure fun but it takes a lot of time!!!|
Now I have to decide on which of these to
use. I won't ask PopPop what colors look best
together. He's colorblind."
|"Hmmm. This looks interesting.|
It's fun to watch the densest liquid
as it goes through the other
liquids to the bottom."
|"These are ok but I need a break. |
I'll work on it some more during
|"I'm back at it. Now I have to remember what|
I was doing."
|"Oh yes...density. These look good but I need|
a bigger container. Hey PopPop!!!"
|"These colors might be good to help show|
the different layers of liquids."
|"This is it! This is lots of hours of work! |
Tomorrow is the Science Fair and no matter
how I do, I had fun and I learned a lot!!!"
|Science Fair Day!|
|Layla was in class when Tom and I|
returned to school this afternoon to
take the project home. Several kids
asked me about her project. That was fun!
