Science Anyone

In case the video doesn't work for some of you ..... I'll include photos too. Mom, Adult kids...do you like the videos or do they simply slow down your connection and make it more frustating than fun to see the kids?

Here's how science went for us today.

Jared is doing Apologia Biology (an ancient edition I'm sure). You may remember that last week he took all the kids and they visited our farmer's pond.

They've had things "growing" in the boys room. Let me rephrase ... things that are SUPPOSED to be growing for a week.

We were blissfully reading Early Thunder when Jared announced he was ready to do his science experiement.

Everyone got to help collect the specimen. Everyone got to peek in the scope. Everyone got to check the text for proper names of squiggly things. Jared gets to write it up and Jared gets credit. WHO do you think did science? One? All ? One text working for Preschool - Sophomore.

Stacia informs us in all seriousness that she sees a PRINCESS in there. ::snort::

It works for us.

Yes, we are doing elementary science for the littles too.

Fabulous! I am teaching Apologia Biology in a co-op and just love this particular "odiforous" experiment. Did you ever solve your specimen issue. I asked at the post office about this but it seems to be a country related situation. If I can help let me know.

Gilda, I made my daughter look at her specimens on the back porch.

Sis: How neat. Remember when it comes to Stacia......"It's all in the eye of the beholder.' ;):):):):) LOVE/PRAYERS --- mOM t.

The year Landon started doing Apologia General Science was the year I stopped doing elementary science experiments (we still did the Sonlight reading) because all the kids got involved in whatever he was doing just as your guys did. Yippee!

Works for me. Our younger kids have always been more interesting in what the older ones were doing for science - especially when it comes to dissecting things !

So cool, De'Etta. I wonder if Japanese pond water would look different than Texan pond water? I'm with Stacia tho, whenever I look under the microscope, all I see are princesses. That's why I'm not much of a scientist.

Maybe we're on to something, Lois...maybe creative artists and musicians see Princesses where others see Sporozoa. ::snort::
