Today's science lesson had a learning lesson and for once we had all of the needed items on hand. Rain anyone?  I'd love to see rain right now. Snow has over stayed its welcome. Back to science, the lesson was to count the number of drops of water the cotton ball could hold before releasing water. You know, clouds and precipitation?  And since you are anxious to know how many drops, 200 drops were held before the cotton ball cloud released its rain.
When one is educated at home and has younger siblings one learns to carry on even when little brother is taking up most of the sitting area of one's chair and laying a glob of silly putty and his face on one's back. Great life skills, I say.


  1. Never thought of doing that before, but sounds very interesting! 200? Wow!

  2. I like that experiment!
