It was cute watching the kids "play around" with electricity and sound. I gave them a number of items (battery, bulb, wires, switches) and told them to figure out a way to light the bulb. I loved how excited they got trying to find different ways to do it. Our labs will continue this week.

If you look closely at the big photo below, you can see Mason pressing his ear against the underside of the table trying to listen to the sound traveling through a solid.
