This was a short week. We were going to go to the Shenandoah Mountains, but with the government shut-down, that trip was canceled. So, it is plan B which leaves me with a few hours to work on classroom stuff.
Geography project - 7 wonders of the world, or more like the 25 wonders of the world
Memory game of numbers
Stamp game - dynamic addition
It's raining cats and dogs
Science experiment time!
Thank you H, for the gloves. T & S LOVE them!
Want to do more!! And a second iteration. The iodine make starches turn blue-black. Non-starch foods will allow the iodine to stay brown. It has to do with the starch molecules forcing a change in the iodine molecules and the new molecules' different reaction to light, thus the color change.
More experimentation - oxidizing fruits
Vitamin C is our oxidizing inhibitor comparison
After an hour, "those ones are under the vitamin D and they are still white, and those other ones turned rotten." "It's vitamin C, S." "Right, vitamin D."
Observations from S's scientific journal
Observations from T's scientific journal, though I think they are backwards.
Dresses, vitamin C, hair bows, and lab safety goggles...very fashionable.
Did this one independently...
and more experiments, turned celery leaves blue.
Tracing for penmanship practice (use baking parchment paper instead of tracing paper, and painters tape for low-tack adhesion
Knobless cylinder formation
crossing out duplicates due to the commutative property of addition, and a little doodle between problems
