Elijah and I spent this week as bubbleologists learning the science behind bubbles. Simon tagged along so much that I think he could be a certified junior bubbleologist!
You may think that February is an odd time to be blowing bubbles, but the weather here is frightful, and this was just right! One day I even brought out the fan to do the bubble blowing for me. I just held the wand out in front and we had bubbles, bubbles, bubbles!
The activities and lapbook we did this week came from a Hands of a Child Project Pack. We learned about temperature and bubbles, how to catch a bubble, bubble vocabulary, what happens when bubbles meet; we did lots of bubble experiments (much to Elijah’s delight!), and we even made our own bubble mixes (three to be exact).
Here are a few pictures of our lapbook

Can you see the bubble prints? This was too much fun! Elijah loved making the prints so much that we decided to put them all over our lapbook.
A favorite! The Bubble EXPLOSION Experiment. 🙂
The vocabulary looks like…BUBBLES!
What a fun project pack the ladies at HOAC have created! The only changes I would make are
1. I wish the experiments had places for Elijah’s predictions
2. I wish the circle book came blank (it is in D’Nealian handwriting style, and we use HWT).
But those things are minor compared to what we learned and the fun we had (and the memories we made!). It’s nice to have a premade lapbook once in awhile! 🙂
