Homeschool: Week 4

Science! We LOVE Science! This week, instead of an outing, we made crystals. Today I am REALLY sad that I don’t have a camera, because I can’t record any of the amazing things they’ve done. *Sigh*.

For Christmas last year DD#1 was given a science crystal set, and this week we made our first successful ones. We each took a different type, and the results were amazing. The girls learned so much about evaporation, sun, crystalisation and that kind of thing.

It sparked off a debate on salt, which led to a trip to the library, and now we know a lot more about salt than we did before. This really is a lot of fun!
