Summer Fun No. 34, Pencil vs. Ziploc Bag

What would happen if you poked freshly sharpened pencils into a Ziploc bag filled with water?   My little scientists thought we would have water everywhere, but I knew better thanks to seeing this experiment featured on Sally's gorgeous blog (click over for gorgeous photos & the science behind the fun).

This was a quickie project, but a huge crowd pleaser!  They had a lot of fun letting the water out the pencil by pencil too.
