Iceberg Experiment and Penguin Snack

While reading 'Adventures of Riley - South Pole Penguins' the kids learned how only a small part of an iceberg is visible above water.  Here is a neat experiment to demonstrate this.  We made some 'icebergs' by squashing and squishing a paper cup and then filling it with water to freeze.

Here are the icebergs!
 

And here are the scientists!


Once frozen, we ripped the 'iceberg' out of the cup and plopped it into a glass bowl of water.  The kids were easily able to see that the biggest part of the iceberg is underwater.





Oreo Penguin Snack

I bought some Oreo cookies and was getting ready to make a snowman snack (that I will post about later), when Sarah said, 'Hey Mom, let's make these oreos into PENGUINS!'

What a great idea - why didn't I think of that!

Here is our little
Oreo Penguin


The eyes and beak are made from fruit snacks.

Yummy!
