The subject of magic often arrises in a Kindergarten science lab. As a science teacher, I discuss how some things look like magic, but are really just science in action. When we understand how something works, we get a greater understanding of the world and the interrelationship of its parts.
Having made that disclaimer, there is one day each year in science that can only be described as magical. I'm talking about bubbles. My favorite day each year is the day we take kindergarten students outside and we make giant bubbles. To be sure, the science of bubbles is really fascinating, but the look on every student's face when they see and chase giant bubbles can only be described as magical.
