Leprechaun Experiments

I'm guessing your students' eyes will be smiling when they see these kids' scientific cute, and what great role models for academic curiosity! Not that we here in the flooded Northeast want to do any more mixing of St. Patrick's day and WATER, as is shown in these experiments.

  1. Just found your blog. I like how you include speech-language implications for technology lessons. I look forward to keeping up with your blog postings via Google Reader.

  2. Thanks, Eric--My first comment here, whoo-hoo! I stumbled on your blog too a bit ago (nice job!) and was meaning to say hi. I will add you to my blog roll here. See ya around!
