Car Wash

L’s Brownie Troop is studying water; the importance of water, its conservation and uses. They have a field trip to a water treatment plant planned for this spring. To build on this learning, we are taking a break from our animal unit and learning more about water.

I took out several books from the library which present information through experimentation. I want to introduce the scientific method during these fun experiments. Today we began with "sink or float". G joined in since she was home sick. The girls gathered many objects from around the house, made a list and checked off it the item sank or not. After exhausting their list and being surprised by many items, they turned this into a much loved activity in this house - matchbox carwash!

G beginning the list.....

what is better than learning in pajamas?

Don't You Just Stay Home All Day?

It’s funny because last night at youth group some of the kids friends were discussing homeschooling and really truly felt that we stay home...
