With the hot month of August what better time then to learn about Heat.
So I was washing a load of clothes the other day and I thought "Huh', let's take advantage of this lil' house hold chore."
So I called my kids into the laundry room and went on to explain to them that even though the clothes were wet from the washer that when hung out on a clothes line the heat from the sun helps to dry clothes quickly. I went on to also say that our dryer does the same thing the sun does only it uses electric heat instead of the sun but that when heat is applied, no matter what the source, it makes the water evaporate.
I then got my hair dryer and wet a piece of cloth and let the kids watch how the heat of the dryer dried the material quickly. They really thought this was cool! ;)
