Immune System Week 2: Mold Experiment, and PCN

Tomorrow DJ will be on his second week of the Immune System and will be doing a mold experiment, and learn about Penicillin. The experiment is easy and you can have your kids do it too. Take a slice of bread, drip a few drops of water on it, seal it in a zip lock bag, then set in a warm sunny spot for a few days then evaluate. This will be DJ's first time of setting up the experiment and then making a hypothesis of what will happen, and then evaluating his hypothesis for results. He will also look at the results under his microscope for evaluation. Be sure to watch the mold growing video below, it is gross. Caitlin will be doing hand washing for prevention of spreading germs. Tomorrow is a half day again.

I had the most disgusting slime mold in the garden a couple of years ago. It is actually CALLED "dog vomit slime mold." I thought some creature had come and messed up my beds, but no...
Fun stuff for kids, though; that's for sure!

Sounds really gross but I am sure my kids would find it fascinating.
