Science Experiment

Most seven year olds love a good experiment. The typical ones: watching seeds sprout, filling a row of glasses with varying levels of water and listening to the different notes when you gently tap it with a spoon, or keeping a weather chart.

In Micah's not so humble opinion, those experiments are for amateurs...otherwise known (by me) as Good Little Kids.

Today Micah decided to see what surfaces dry erase markers really will wipe off of easily. And today I decided that Micah is not always a GLK. Although he is always dang cute.

His supplies: a dry erase marker, a dry erase board, and a pair of legs (his)
His procedure: write on the board, and the legs. (or scribble, it's easier)
His hypothesis: the marker should wipe off both surfaces
Data/Observation: the marker does NOT wipe off the legs
Inference (what was learned): Do not use a dry erase marker on your legs unless you want Mom to put you in the bathroom sink and scrub you with an old soft toothbrush. (A bath would have been too much fun.)

What I learned? Never turn your back on Micah!

Very cute and totally something a couple of my sons would try. Actually, mine are more likely to choose permanent marker.
