    That's a neat science experiment, and it was fun to see how it evolved into other activities =)

    Thanks for sharing this fun experiment with us! I will have to remember this when we do our bear theme.

    I just read about an experiment like this (somewhere – ??); it sounds really neat! I'm just wondering if there's some lard-less way to do it, lol. 🙂 Looks like Bear had a great time with the water!

    Funny – I also read about this experiment somewhere in the book, but now I cannot recall which book it was. I thought at the time that we will do it one of these days. Interestingly, I asked Anna the other day if she wants to play with ice, and she absolutely refused informing me that she doesn't like cold icy things. I like how your experiment transformed into several other things including float/sink experiment.

    I'm going to be doing this with my kids when we study penguins. I remember doing this with my first graders, and it got MESSY!

    I'd wondered if you'd posted this activity–here it is:-).Wasn't it so much fun? We LOVED it! I'd never done this before–the Crisco part, my daughter said she'd done it a couple times over the years in public school. It was really neat.Pretty funny, I see we both used glass bowls for our experiment. Which IBB unit are you guys doing next week?

    I love that idea with the water/crisco! I think I'm going to buy the IBB curriculum too. I am just undecided which one to get.
