Getting Buggy in Science!

Last Monday we had a super fun chance to play with HexBugs!

If you do not already have them in your home, you may not be familiar with this toy craze.  We have never had the opportunity to play with them before, but we were ALL enjoying ourselves for the entire class!  HexBugs use almost an ultrasonic vibration to make them scoot around.  The way they run across the floor is very realistic!  These are great because the kids are unknowingly learning about oodles of science principles and also just general cause and effect concepts!

Here are a few pictures.. Sorry there aren’t more.  I was too busy playing with the kids! 🙂
