Burning Chocolate in the Name of Science

We started our astronomy section of science back before Christmas.  We had to wait a week or so for a warm sunny afternoon to do one of our experiments though.  Justin was home on break, so he took the girls out with the magnifying glass and some chocolate, with the goal of melting some chocolate.

I wish you could see it better, but we actually caught the chocolate on fire!  I think it really drove home the idea that the light can damage your eyes to Kate.  I think Gabby and Justin just thought that burning chocolate was fun!
