mad little scientists

This morning we had our first "lab science" activity. I let the babies unleash their inner scientists by performing experiments with a variety of ingredients from around the house- baking soda, vinegar, flour, salt, sugar, snow, food coloring, lotion, etc. We set up our labs and I encouraged them to experiment with combining different ingredients to see what would happen- they loved it and observed that some things bubbled, some thickened, some thinned out, some melted (snow) and some changed colors. We learned that science is all about doing experiments to learn what happens when we try out new things- science is exploration and discovery.
