This is probably the main reason I love doing science experiments with Sprite: Look at that face. The wonder, the joy of discovery. This is hardly work. This is science play! So although it’s sometimes a hassle to find the supplies, set it all up, and then clean up afterwards, it’s so worth it. Not […]
We assembled another lapbook this week. We’ve been collecting these minibooks for several months now. Sprite does a few minibooks each week, usually after a science lesson as her narration activity. We took pics outside when we went to free our latest nature study object — a grasshopper. For the cover, Sprite made a drawing […]
We’re studying chemistry! And what’s a chemistry study without a Periodic Table of Elements? You know that simply printing out a copy is not enough for us. Oh no. Instead, I had Sprite make her own wall chart. We actually started adding elements during our reading of The Mystery of the Periodic Table. (I highly […]
You all know the wonderful reaction you get when you mix baking soda with vinegar. Well we took it up a notch and created a full fledged experiment with it! Part of our chemistry curriculum is studying the scientific method and performing an experiment. Sprite wanted to test three types of vinegar and see which […]
In our Chemistry study, we were studying hydrogen and came across the story of the Hindenburg. So we did the Disaster Diorama of the Hindenberg! (Not an easy model, BTW.) Then Sprite added hydrogen and all of the noble gases to a large periodic table that we’re making. I’ll blog more on that later.
