Yesterday, he was reading and jumped up from the couch while calling the kids. He had an idea for a "science project". I was in the middle of making a dessert as he was asking where he could find a tube, a pail, a glass jar...etc. He finally gathered all of the items to build a SPIROMETER.
He had the kids breathe into it and measure their breath at a normal resting heartrate. Then he had them run up and down ALL the stairs 2 or 3 times and try again. The second time their breaths were MUCH bigger. THUS, we learn that when our heartrates have increased, our lungs have much greater capacity. TA DA!
The kids LOVED the experiment, and they learned something. I'm so glad they have a Daddy as curious about things as they are, what fun!
Savi was ALL ABOUT this little laboratory experiment! See how excited she is?
Syd wasn't so sure. We WERE a little worried she'd suck on it instead of exhaling...and it wasn't exactly clean water...
She finally decided she's give it a go after watching that her sis and buddy didn't get bamboozled.
