Learning Laboratory: Daddy Science

Lily, not too sure Mike knows what he's doing with the grater

For Daddy experiment time, Mike decided to find out if cinnamon smelled like cinnamon when it burned. First, he grated some cinnamon so the kids would see how ground cinnamon was made. Lily wasn’t so sure about this use of the cheese grater!

Next, he tried burning the cinnamon, which just smelled like burning wood. Lily is a tough audience!

  1. Yes, Emma’s message is super sweet. This is a fabulous experiment! Your learning laboratory posts are always so interesting. I love seeing what you come up with. The first picture of Lily is awesome–love to know the thoughts going through her little head!

    I love the charcoal component of this. I might have us do this with a few different things to see how they compare.
