When his mother came in, 6 shouting at him or giving him a lecture, she said, ＂Robert, what a great and wonderful 7 you have made! I have 8 seen such a huge pool of milk. Well, the damage has already been 9 . Would you like to get down and 10 in the milk for a few minutes before we clean it up?＂
His mother said, ＂You know, what we have here is a 11 experiment in how to carry a big milk bottle with two 12 hands. Let’s fill the bottle with water and see if you can 13 it.＂ The little boy learned that if he 14 the bottle at the top near the lip with both hands, he could carry it without dropping it.

Even if the experiment ＂doesn’t 19 ＂, we usually learn something 20 from it.
