Summer School: Science Camp, Day 5

Today was the last day of science camp. My little guys were a bit overwhelmed after 2 weeks of summer school at a new school, so I took it easy on them today. We did a few little activities that didn't quite fit into our theme days.

Today's activities:
-fingerprints. The ink pads and magnifiers were a success. I found a suggestion online to dust for prints with cornstarch and soft paintbrushes, but that was a total failure. It just made a big mess and caused my little guys to giggle at me for make it dust go everywhere and not even find the fingerprints I intentionally made on the table.
-examined our celery and carnations that were changing color
-used socks on our hands to see what it would be like if we didn't have thumbs
-watched a bit of the Magic School Bus on the topics we learned about this week
-made geometric shapes out of toothpicks and marshmallows
-learned how heat and air can pop popcorn in an air popper
