water on earth

We are doing a little unit on the water cycle and the girls did an experiment to represent the earth's water. If the water in the blender represents all the water on earth, the water in the larger measuring spoon represents the water frozen in the polar ice caps and the smaller measuring spoon represents fresh water in ponds, streams, lakes etc. Wow that puts it in perspective!!

Cool experiment!! How is Miss Josie? I don't see her cast?! Is it under her shirt? I know it must be hard in the winter with a bulky cast and having to deal with cooler weather. Christian's accident happened in June, so it wasn't an issue for him thank goodness... miss you all!!!
