Montessori and Hands on Science

This year I'm focusing on learning Anatomy with my boys, ages 4, 6, and 8. I always try to incorporate hands on experiments with each lesson. This week we were focusing on cells. What is a cell, how do they work, what are they made up of? I printed out some great cards from Spell Outloud.
We made Jello!


 1 box of orange Jello (make as directed on package) then add
 1 box of Knox Gelatin
 1 extra cup of cold water

(It works best if you let the Jello sit overnight) I got together a tray of candies that could be used for all the parts of the cell, and the boys went to town.

I think one of my little science boys was eating the jello too. (smile!)

I hope you enjoy some hands on Science with your little ones. It can be very educational and SO much fun.
