Great morning for a fire

Great morning for a fire!

Sophia discovering the blues and greens, and animal shapes in the flames.

She noticed how changing air flow allows flames to change.

We even discussed salt vs water for putting out firs, how tempered glass works, and about fire extinguishers.

Also, we discussed how we humans went from flint, to matches, to butane fire lighters.

We even talked about different types if wood, toxic smoke and combustibles.

All this was led by her curiosity and questions about the fire.

This is aut[odidactic]ism in action.
