Science : Solar Dancing Pumpkin

We have had a great time with this little pumpkin guy this week. He has a little solar panel at his feet. I found him at Dollar Tree a few weeks ago an he had to be mine. He dances when his panel has been exposed to light and slows down when the lights are turned down. The children have noticed the changes in the movement of our little pumpkin guy. It has led to some good discussions about energy, different forms of energy and how some energy forms are cleaner than others. I will check back at the Dollar Tree to see if there are any dancing turkeys or reindeer. Can't wait!! I will let you know if I find anything. What are some of the neat things you have found at the dollar store?
