How You Breathe

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

1. I think it’s cool that the windpipe can push pieces of dirt back into the throat.

2. I think it’s important that there is a way to make someone breathe again when they’ve stopped breathing.

3. When you are resting, you usually breathe through your nose.

Sam's visible body shirt

Sam designed her own organs: heart, lungs, stomach, intestines, couple of bones. Then she painted them on a t-shirt, with the help of some stencils, and her mother.

Why You Breathe

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

1. It was interesting that the windpipe branches go into thousands of other little tubes.

2. There are 300 million air bags in your lungs.

3. It’s cool that there is a pinch of oxygen in water.

Experiment: What’s that Object?

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

1. What Did We Use?

We used balls, apple, lime and a shell. We also used a hat, a book, a pencil and a bandana. Also thick and thin gloves.

2. What Did We Do?

We put the things on a tray and put the bandana around Mom’s head so she couldn’t see. She tried to feel the stuff on the tray, and see if she could tell. We also tried with gloves–really thick ones. Then we tried with thinner gloves.

3. What happened?

Mom did very good. She mostly got them all right, but some wrong with the thick gloves. She thought they were all balls. With the thin gloves, however, she did better.

4. What did we learn?

We learned that feeling is much better at telling you what you’re touching than you think.

We then repeated the experiment with Dad:
Touch experiment 1
Touch experiment 2
Touch experiment 3

Touch

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

It would be funny if clothes always itched. The feeling goes away.

Touch is more powerful than you think.

There must be a lot of sensors for pain in your body.

More melanin makes your skin darker.

You can see blood vessels leaking when you have a bruise.
