Excited Molecules and a small handwriting freebie

October 1, 2010 at 5:06 am 3 comments

This was an exciting experiment. That’s a bar of ivory soap after a minute in the microwave. The heat excited those water molecules contained inside the soap. It won’t harm your microwave and my son realized he could do it again and again with the same soap. This is one of the experiments from the Supercharged Science curriculum. Here is another experiment you can try.

Making glowing slime–it’s not dangerous, my son just likes the goggles
You can learn the slime recipe from the Supercharged Science site. This link will get you the video for this experiment. She does all the experiments for you in a video so you know how to do it and at least some of what to expect. She doesn’t always spoil a surprise though. This way you KNOW the experiment will work. How many times have you done an experiment that failed and you didn’t know if it was the experiment or something you did? The free experiments you get from Supercharged Science will always work because they have been tried out. Also, the woman in the videos is always available for questions by email or text message, usually you even get a same-day response. She also has a time when people using her curriculum can call her each week (toll-free) to ask questions.
Also while I’m posting, I made up three pages to go along with a copy of Handwriting without Tears I got from a friend. I have the teacher’s guide for grades one and two. I have made up a few blank pages with the blocks and double lines that they use. You have to write in your own sample letters/words for them to copy, but the teacher’s guide has a picture of each page of the student book so you know what they are supposed to be doing on each page.  There are a lot of people out there with the teacher’s guides that they can give you, but everyone has used up their student books. Here’s the link to download the blank handwriting pages: HWT paper

    OOOHHH.. how cool. But what do you mean you can do it again and again? Do you squish it back together and re heat it?

    I adore Ivory soap. Of course, can’t get it here. I’d never use it for an experiment! Well, I might cut of a slice. 🙂

      It deflates quickly and it will puff back up in the microwave. You should see the flaming grape experiment 🙂
