"Mom? I'm bored."
I think to myself...and so it begins.
"Can we do a science experiment?"
Oh good! I've got some of those. I dig through our collection of Magic School Bus science club mailings and read off the choices. Bacteria and Fungi? No. Weather experiments? Yes! Build your own weather station...sounds fun! So we get to work.
An hour later we have a wind vane, a rain gauge, a thermometer, a wet sponge (something about air saturation/100% humidity and rain), and two bottles connected together that are supposed to show a "vortex" or indoor tornado. I think we did that one wrong.
After reading all the interesting facts and filling out the scientist's workbook, Max says, "Mom? Weather is boring..."
Maybe we'll try Bacteria and Fungi next. *gulp*
Imagines our house as ground zero for a new plague outbreak. With zombies. Stay tuned.
