Tonight we took some time after bath to do a science project with the boys. I got this idea off from one of the PBS shows that they watch, I do not remember which one it was. Well the whole idea is to take dirty water and try to filter out as much of the dirt as possible. So to start of with they were really excited to do it.
To start with we had to make the water dirty so DH went outside and got some dirt for the boys. Then we took to funnels and lined them with coffee filters. After that the boys got to pick out what type of filters they wanted to try. We supplied thm with Beach Sand, Pebbles, Sea Shells, Cotton Balls, and finally rice. We kept the test tubes near by so they could try different filters and compare. To me the best filter was (all though I would not drink it) the beach sand.
Gabe was so curious about what was going to happen. He kept checking out what was happening to his brothers.
He was extremly proud of his though to. "LOOK WHAT I DID!"
Sam was always hard at concentration. They both had such a good time.
