It's been a busy week in the Ladybugs as we built marble runs with our mentors and investigated the properties of water beads with the Bumblebees. So much learning and fun happening at the same time!

|It all starts with a question.|
|It requires the appropriate equipment.|
|The question in this case, what are we looking at?|
|Is it similar to anything you are familiar with?|
|We generated lots of possibilities.|
|Further observation using more than just our eyes, is it soft or|
rough? Pebbly or like sand?
|Crystals or a powder?|
|What happens when you add water?|
|Has it changed or does it look different?|
|Does it take up more space in the cup?|
|How does it feel? Hot or cold?|
|Could the property of evaporation . . .|
|or absorption explain what happened?|
|The insta-snow powder absorbed the water|
turning the powder into artificial snow.
