My First Prezi

There have been many things going on lately, most of which I’m halfway through blogging about – I promise they’re coming soon!

Anyways, I’m so excited to announce I just finished my first Prezi. Check it out here: http://prezi.com/ejc0vugrqdc_/heat-transfer-basics-pos/

It was so incredibly easy – even faster than Power Point! And much more engaging…I’m interested to see how my 9th graders react!

Burning

At a family gathering the other day I had a fantastic conversation with my three year old niece.

We were sitting in the grass sipping our pink lemonade and discussing how thirsty we were when my husband joined us. He needed help applying his sunscreen, so we started talking about sunburns:

———-

Niece: Why is Uncle Keith putting on sunscreen?

Me: So he doesn’t get a sunburn.

Niece: What does it mean to get a sunburn?

Me: The sun is very, very hot and it burns our skin if we’re not careful!

Niece: Oh, you mean like the oven!

Me: Yes!

Niece: Or a candle. Candles burn.

Me: What else burns?

Niece: Well, cookies don’t burn, because then they don’t taste good.

It was a wonderful conversation! One of those precious moments that I’m glad I took advantage of: even though it was a short conversation, it was really fun to explore the idea of “burning” together – you’re never too young to learn science!!
