April Fools Day Lesson Plan
Can't Hear My Voice? - How the Ear Works
In the morning, I started to mouth my words to Marley without actually speaking. She smiled and asked, "Mommy, what are you doing?" I kept up my silent words for about 5 minutes and Marley started to copy me by speaking without sound. I then let her in on my joke. We then discussed how sound and hearing works. Here are a few links on that subject:

Frozen Cereal - How Liquids Freeze
Last night I poured my kids cereal and milk and put the bowls in the freezer. This morning they had a little surprise. Obviously, the frozen milk didn't stop my Dylan from digging in to her cereal. Hahaha!
After we had some giggles, we discussed why things freeze and how temperature works. Here are some good information links:
- Freezing Liquids Experiment
- Melting and Boiling
- States of Matter Worksheet

Brownies, er... Brown Es - Lower Case & Upper Case
I told my girls that I had baked them some brownies. Okay, well technically I didn't say the word "brownies" but they got all excited and ran to the kitchen. When I opened the oven, Marley said, "Wait a minute! These aren't brownies." I said, "Yes they are. They are brown Es aren't they?... April Fools!"
She was laughing and was such a good sport about it. I thought she would be sad that they weren't real brownies.
