Help Support the Boys & Girls Club


 boys_girls_club

Family, friends, and Juice Plus customers, You may not all be aware of my involvement at the Boys and Girls Club of Bluffton. They have two Tower Gardens and run a small business entitled “Thank God It’s Green.” (TGIG) We grow our own produce in the Tower Gardens and then sell it at the local Farmer’s Market. We are teaching them about the newest concept in gardening as well as entrepreneurship.
I just recently became aware of a contest through Wells Fargo where they are awarding funds for small businesses or community involvement.  They have accepted my application and the winner is determined by the NUMBER OF VOTES received.  The unfortunate part is that the voting ends on JUNE 30.  If you have a desire to cast your vote for me I would greatly appreciate your support.  You are also welcome to pass it on to others. To support our program please click here

Thank you in advance.

Be blessed, ML

Stay well,

Geeky Educational Link Up.. The Young Scientist


This week I decided to share a few simple experiments geared toward the younger scientist. It is never to early to share your love for science with your kiddos!

All experiments are courtesy of 501 Science Experiments:

Heat Waves

This simple  experiment shows us what heat waves look like when they travel here from the sun.

Materials:

* a ribbon about 18 inches long

Steps

1. Have your youngster take the ribbon in one hand and then shake it in front of them. Your child will notice the ribbon looks like a wave when it moves. You can explain to your child that the way energy gets from one place to another is in waves, like light and heat.

Making a Rainbow

Materials:

* 16oz glass of water

* 8×10 piece of white paper

Steps

1. Do this on a sunny day

2. Place the glass of water on the window sill, this is so the light can shine through the glass.

3. Put the piece of white paper on the floor directly in the suns path; making sure that the sun is shinning through the glass.

4. Have your child write down as many colors he or she sees.

Hopefully, all seven colors will be showing!

 

Make Your Own Lightning

Materials

* comb

* piece of wool

* metal doorknob

Steps

1. Rub the comb with the piece of wool. This will charge the comb with electricity!

2. Then hold the comb near the metal door, you should see a small spark. This small spark happens because the electricity is jumping from the charged object(the comb) to the neutral object (the doorknob).

* We personally like charging the comb with the wool and running it over our heads to watch our hair stand on end:)

 

These experiments are basic but are a wonderful fun way to introduce science to younger children.

 

Some great posts from last weeks link up:

New York Homeschool’s post on Making Ice from Scratch was tried several times this weekend.

I have always been fascinated with butterflies.  Fran’s post about the butterfly lifecycle was very informative, read more about it here

Jess’s post is for all of us Mom’s looking for educational games while on our 10 hour car trips to see family this summer. Grab some great free Andriod apps here
