From the Desks of Isaiah,Elijah, and Hannah

So a short week for school in our home, but short doesn't mean it was short on FUN! Check out what we did in two days!

So we have moved on to learning about "solids" in science. After a quick intro we jumped into some experiments.

This is what happens when you put a bar of Ivory soap in your microwave for two minuets. Any guesses to why? The boys want you to comment with your guess.
I don't know what's up with the faces...but we bought a ready to grow crystal kit. You'll have to check back for the results.
This is our "homemade" version, hopefully in a few days we'll have edible rock candy.

Elijah has been waiting for a week to complete his King Tut death mask. You can find out how to make it at this website.

It's from an empty milk jug, that we attached paper plates to and then paper mache. Oh yeah what a mess.

Spray painted with gold paint and then painted the design on with tempera paint.

He's lying down with the mask on top. He loves this thing. (that's my foot he's not that flexible)

And isn't this the cutest? Elijah and Hannah sitting in the laundry basket, which he then proceeded to push her in all over the house. She squealed in delight and it was music to my ears.
