Hands-On Exploration: Playlist

Now that we've caught up for the most part with our math standards roll-out, we'll have time to play more with science invention and exploration. Here's a short list of what's to come. I have a lot of play to do to prep for these explorations. I'm sure the list will continue to grow in depth and breadth. In the meantime, if you have ideas for me--please let me know. 
  • Little bits' Inventions
  • Batteries, bulbs, magnets, and wires
  • Growing plants
  • Composting
  • Simple Machines
  • Marble mazes
  • Sound inventions--making music and other beautiful, useful noise
  • Energy makers, users
  • Weather models
  • Adaptation review
  • Hack toys
  • Geometry models
  • Coding math models.
