Join us every day this week for Science Story Time! A science themed story is paired with a related video, a simple activity and a coloring sheet. Each day has a different story, video, activity and coloring sheet to engage your budding scientist!

Book: What is Science? by Rebecca Kai Dotlich. Also, check out Hoopla and Tumble Book Library on the Library's website for other books to enjoy.

Video: Let’s Be Scientists, a Planet Nutshell video.

Activity:  Make an Echo

You’ll need: Paper Towel Tubes and a Pie Pan

Prop the pie pan up on a table so it is vertical.  Take one paper towel tube and place it on the table, angled a bit but aimed at the pie plate.  Take the other paper towel and have it angled the opposite way, also aimed at the pie plate. Have your child put his ear to one of the tubes while you talk softly into the other. You can hear what is said through the other tube!

The sound waves you create by speaking travel through the tube. They are directed through the tubes, hit the pie plate, and bounce off, traveling back through the other tube. You are hearing the echo.

Coloring Sheet: Print the attachment and decorate with crayons, paint, stickers or whatever inspires you!
