I pulled three questions from my jar. Which question do you want to explore next week?
To keep germs from spreading, keep your distance from other people. Can you come up with an invention that makes that fun?
A hoop protects your space. You can even add a rolling table! But making a hoop is hard. What’s an invention you can build at home?
One Chinese school had students make hats like one worn by an emperor 1,000 years ago. The long flaps keep students far apart.
Imagine that it’s your birthday, but you can’t have friends over. How can people have parties while staying apart? Any ideas?
You could have a car parade! Or people could leave messages outside! How could people graduate together or have a school dance?
Check out these creative celebrations! A boy threw a “dance” for his babysitter. This graduation party has real faces on pretend people!
These signs tell people what to do. But check out the blue sign. What do you think that one is telling you to do?
These people have figured out the sign’s message! It tells you that this is a place for Silly Walks. Everyone walks silly in their own way!
Make your own Silly Walks sign! Put it in your home, or have an adult put it outside. You can also write silly directions on a sidewalk!
Tens of thousands of flamingos have flocked to this city lake. Why do you think that’s happening? Why now?
Many animals are visiting cities, not just flamingos! There’s less pollution in the air and water—and fewer people out to be scared of!
Animals are in even stranger places! Since people aren’t going to museums, zookeepers have given curious birds a chance to roam!
An art museum had a fun idea: dress up like a painting! People use silly stuff from around their home. What could you use to make a collar and eyepatch?
People get very creative. Look closely at what people use! Can you spot any rolls of toilet paper? What other things do you notice?
Try it out! Here are three famous paintings to choose from. Can you copy one using blankets, paper, fruit, pets, or more?
Do masks really stop the coronavirus?
Watch the video to discover the answer and don't forget to vote for next week's question. There are mysteries all around us. Have fun and stay curious!
