Jake and I started reading Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder together today we stumbled upon a science experiment in it that we couldn't resist trying. Have you read it? The main character is Almanzo (Laura's future husband) and the book starts right before his 9th birthday and tells of his life on his fathers farm. In the 3rd chapter you learn what they did as a family during the cold winter nights. They do something our family does too. They popped popcorn. :)
In the book it says: "You can fill a glass full to the brim with milk, and fill another glass of the same size brim full of popcorn, and then you can put all the popcorn kernel by kernel in to the milk, and the milk will not run over. You cannot do this with bread. Popcorn and milk are the only two things that will go into the same place."
We read this and of course we had to try it...
(I know this has nothing to do with our March=Math month but I am sure some where in the book I can tie it in. I just couldn't wait to read this book with Jake!...Give me some time and I will figure out how it applies to math in some way...)
