Earth Day Idea

Here's another great idea that was shared at the "Little Hands Investigating Science" workshop that I attended recently.  (Previous Post)  

These adorable dancing bugs are currently at the Dollar Tree.  

They are powered by a little solar cell.  What a fun way to demonstrate solar energy to young learners.  I picked up a couple and plan to bring them out next April when we do our Earth Day unit.  I may put one in a box and one in the sun to show the difference.
