Hi there,
How are you? I hope I'm not being a bother, but my daughter, Dakota, wanted to reach out to you about your web page, http://virtualteacher.com.au/science.html. Your page has links that we were able to explore and bookmark for our science project. :)

Throughout the school year, Dakota and I, like to do fun mother/daughter projects.This is a great way to help Dakota brush up on her science as well. ;) Anywho! While googling for some more resources, Dakota found this resource on the fun science experiments - https://www.titleproloans.com/articles/car-science-experiments/https://www.titleproloans.com/articles/car-science-experiments/
She was thinking that it'd be a valuable resource for your page. Do you mind adding it? I know she'd be delighted to make a valuable contribution and maybe useful to other kids. :)
Looking forward to hearing back,

Mrs. Lowe

Hi Stephanie,
