Science Fun at Home!

We've been talking about how we use our five senses. Today we were reading a cool book that has some fun exciting activities your child can do at home. If he/she does one of these activities, write a note about what he/she observed. Anyone who does the activity by Monday gets a special reward. Have fun!

Our eyes help us see:

Dim the lights. Look at your eyes in the mirror. Are your pupils big? Now turn on a bright light. Did you see your pupils get smaller? Your pupils get bigger and smaller to let in just the right amount of light.

Our ears help us hear:
Turn on the radio or TV. Play it very softly. Stand on the other side of the room. Cup your hands behind your ears. The sound seems louder, doesn't it?
