A pine needle discovery bottle

Bring wonder into your classroom with these easy to make discovery bottles! There is just something about pinecones and pine needles that are so inviting and so beautiful. I wanted my students to take a closer look at the pine needles so I made up a few pine needle discovery bottles to add to our classroom

Dental Health Egg Experiment

Have you ever wondered what pop or juice does to your teeth? In our kindergarten class we decided to do an experiment to see what would happen if we drank pop or juice and didn't brush our teeth.

Basically, I love all things astronomy (here's another kids' craft and a storytime), so it was only a matter of time before I got an actual astronomer in here to talk about constellations.
