Just noticed when I was putting these pictures on here that they were taken 5 years and 3 days ago!

This morning I had plans to teach. But the kids were in the mood to experiment. I found them in the kitchen. Shirts off. First they were playing with the LEGO torpedo underwater. Then they decided to try and create a whirlpool.

Just so you don't think that there was no learning going on....the torpedo experiment gave us a chance to talk about energy lost from the drag of the water and the power of gravity. If you have 5 minutes to waste, I posted a video of the kids and their first whirlpool success.
(The action starts around 4min25sec)

And since they are busy doing what they are doing I'm going to get busy dealing with this mess.

Love love the pictures. Making whirlpools sounds like a blast.
