Science fun

I didn’t manage to get any pictures of our science experiments yesterday, sorry.

We are in chapter 3 of Real Science 4 Kids Chemistry pre-level 1 (seriously, look at the covers of those books, they even LOOK like so much fun).  Thankfully, I had the foresight to put big trays underneath our clear plastic cups (we call those big trays “crawfish trays” down here) because if I hadn’t, I would have had a huge mess to clean.  We are studying chemical reactions and how molecules trade atoms.  E was so excited when he mixed two cups and it bubbled over all into the tray.  We took our science outside and used baking soda and vinegar to kill fire ant hills.  I call that a practical application!

And as requested (since it’s not often they actually ask for something educational) they now own a periodic table shower curtain. 

We still have not had any success in choosing a history curriculum.  Perhaps I am being too picky about it, but I don’t want to use something that I’m not okay with.

That marketing project I was so worried about.. I got 100% on it.
