This past week the Little Man and I have been doing the Sun chapter in Astronomy. Since, it rained several days last week we had to wait for a sunny day so we could do an experiment with a magnifying glass. When we finally had a day where the sun was peaking out for a bit we got out the cold candy bar from the refrigerator.
This was a new experiment for the Little Ones. Last year, we didn't do this experiment when the Little Lady did Astronomy so everyone was interested in knowing about the powerful sun rays.
The Little Man focused his magnifying glass on to the chocolate candy bar. He had to play with the magnifying glass to get the sun rays to concentrate the light in a small circle. Once he had his small circle in one place for a bit it didn't take long for the cold chocolate bar to melt.
However, it didn't become extremely impressive until the chocolate candy bar began to smoke!
There is nothing like the smell of burnt chocolate! So, after making the chocolate smoke and putting several burnt holes into the candy bar, Beloved came over to our experiment and announced that it is absolutely horrible to have a good candy bar go to waste. So, all of Kiddos including Beloved made it disappeared!!!
