Glow stick experment (hot or cold)

The question is "do glow sticks glow better in hot or cold water?"
So to answer this question me and my daughter did a quick experment. It was to put one glow stick in hot water and one in cold water, both the same color stick. Here is a picture of the experment
Left is hot water    right is cold water


As you can see the glow stick glows way better in hot water, but why?

Answer- The glow of a glow stick is caused by achemical reaction that produces light. The faster that reaction occurs, the more light is given off. The heat in this case actually speeds up that chemical reaction, in turn producing a brighter glow.

Love this experment casue we use glow sticks in glow baths! shown here-

One way I keep my kids learning over the summer break!

We all know that summer can be one time our kids can lose what they learn during the school year. We get told this over and over every year and it is very true. So every summer we try to fit in as much learning as we can(while still having fun). This year we are trying spring/summer journals. As much as possible we  take walks and every time the kids see something they find interesting they either write about it and/or draw a picture to go with it. This way we are keeping up with new vocabulary and learning about many different things.
So yeah, this is the new thing we are adding this summer to help keep my kids learning! So far it has been a big hit, lets hope it stays that way. :)



Have a good rest of your morning, evening, or night! Bye guys!~
