We’ve been having a lot of fun exploring Science using food. We’ve been talking a lot about how smell works and how it can change the way your food tastes. I decided it would be fun to put together a smell science experiment for the kids so they could explore this more! Make sure to scroll down for free printables to go with your project.
This week my daughter decided she wanted cookies this week. Thing is, they just weren’t coming out right. She tried multiple recipes and tweaked things in different ways in an attempt to get the perfect cookie. However, it just didn’t seem to work. I decided it was time to put together a cookie science project for her so that she can practice baking and learn some of the science about why cookies cook the way they do. Make sure to scroll down for the printable that goes with this project.

We were invited out to see trackers placed on loggerhead sea turtles to track their migration. I will be sharing more about that trip soon. I decided this week needed to focus on learning more about sea turtles. I wanted the kids to really enjoy the trip and understand why it was so important. Are you teaching about sea turtles this school year? I put together this list of sea turtle resources including crafts, printables, books, videos, and more!
