Aren't these fantastic!
Just imagine the fun your class could have and the questions that would be generated.
Can we make a stronger mixture?
Does it still work on a windy day?
Can you make other bubbles inside the big one?
Why does humidity make a difference?
The friend who sent the photos said..
"It was only 70% humidity, higher humidity gives better bubbles - we had trouble closing off the bubbles that day, without them popping."
Here is a link to the bubble book, and 'bubble thing', that we have - it's an ad for it on Amazon, and you can look at some of the inside pages. Might be useful. . . . http://www.amazon.com/Unbelievable-Bubble-Book-John-Cassidy/dp/0932592155/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1203286949&sr=8-1
If anyone else has ideas or photos of things they have tried please send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll put them up (just make sure you have permission for children's photos). We're always looking for new material so would love to hear from you.
