Homeschool Science

What?  It's sunny out, and I thought I was done for the day!

I can't believe you're making me write up the experiment.
Do I really have to write up every single one?
And why are you calling me a predator?
Mom, this is so dorky.

My prey is in there?
Um, I don't eat paper.

Oh!  I'm an M&M predator!
Alrighty, then.

Only thirty seconds?

Maybe mom isn't quite so dorky after all.
And I even found some of the camouflaged (green) ones.

Oh, that is a really clever idea! I love it! Gunnar's expressions are priceless, too, haha!

It was pretty cool.

Besides talking about the effectiveness of camouflage, it illustrates natural selection. If M&M's could reproduce, (and isn't THAT wishful thinking!) which colors would survive to pass on their genes to babies in this habitat?

so funny...loved Gunnar's expression and body language...and what a total turnaround when he's searching through that box!

I could hear the nature documentary background music playing - you should make a video!

I can't take any credit - the experiment idea comes from Apologia science. We're doing Zoology for the third book in a row - Gunnar's choice.

And Joanna, you're brilliant. Why didn't I think of doing David Attenborough's voice?!

Love the pout face and goggles, Gunnar!

Trying to remember if we used m&ms for that, or maybe skittles? {m&ms would be much better prey!}

Love Gunnar's expression! So if the credit doesn't go to you for the brilliant experiment, I know Apologia science would be a huge hit in this house!
