Shapes

Okay now the first thing we need to know is what shape a bubble is.

Who knows what shape a bubble is?
Scream it out!

(A Circle)
Oh my goodness we got circle! You’re so smart!

Except for one Homeschool Kid who said Sphere, well done!

Now, I have my handy dandy circle bubble blower to see if we can prove it.
Now, we can’t just know a bubble is a circle we have to prove it so say Dee Dee Prove IT!
Fine I will! 
Now who thinks it’s going to be a circle?
Who thinks it’s going to be something else?
Who thinks an Elephant?

But maybe I cheated because a heart is kind of like a circle
So!

If a circle shaped bubble blower blows a circle bubble and a heart shaped bubble blower blows a circle bubble what shape will a star blow?

Ooh we are very smart!

Come out and Play

And here they are!
It’s still a circle you guys!
Give yourselves a round of applause you’re geniuses!

Air Gun

Do you know why bubbles are always a circle?

Because inside the bubble there’s air and the air is trying to get out! 
In all the directions at the same time and if I push in all the directions at the same time I make a?
That’s right!
Do you guys believe me that there is air inside a bubble? 
You shouldn’t just believe it say Dee Dee prove it!
Fine I will! 
I’m going to need a helper to prove it

I’m going to need someone who puts their hands on their head

Their hands on their tummy

Their hands on their knees

Their hands on their toes

Their hands on their nose!

Their finger in their nose!
Don’t put your fingers in your nose

Who is really good?
