blowing bubbles

from the matter and energy section
in basic montessori by david gettman,
this is one of the exercises that help to
“make a child aware that air is an important part of the physical environment,
and to demonstrate some of the air’s properties.”

plus it’s fun.

“we have air in our lungs.
when we blow through the straw
we blow air.”

kids probably do this anyway.
but done with explanation
— and a little dish soap and food coloring for fun —
now it’s a science lesson.
