My Little Scientist

Lauren, who is in tenth grade, has enjoyed her biology experience. This is a huge relief to me. I admit that I have been more than a little nervous about high school science. I thought I’d share a few photos of my “little” scientist at work for our loved ones far away. Be warned, one… Continue reading My Little Scientist


Frozen {A Science Experiment}

If you thought this post would be about the Disney movie released last winter, sorry to disappoint you. I just couldn’t resist using that title. 😉 As I’ve shared before, Leslie is doing the Apologia Astronomy course. We just finished chapter 13 – only one more to go! When I bought the book in 2009,… Continue reading Frozen {A Science Experiment}

Leslie’s Rocket

We finally did the experiment from Chapter 10, about Saturn, from the Apologia Astronomy book. (We incorrectly say it’s the Chapter on Uranus and Neptune in the video. Sorry ’bout that.) We are now on chapter 12, so I was a little behind on this one! I kept forgetting to do it, or Terry wasn’t… Continue reading Leslie’s Rocket

First, we created a hurricane, to resemble the massive one on Jupiter. The second video is where we made a cloud, similar to Uranus and Neptune. Leslie with her hurricane setup. Before… Continue reading A Few Astronomy Experiments

I realize the average person probably thinks that it’s just…well, boring. Pretty soon I will be caught up, and… Continue reading More of Mitchell’s Science

The {Edible} Periodic Table

Mitchell is using Chemistry and Physics from the Young Explorer series by Apologia. We didn’t get started till the end of September, because the book wasn’t released until then. Therefore, we aren’t as far along with it as the other kids are with their sciences. He is enjoying the experiments very much, but the book… Continue reading The {Edible} Periodic Table

My oldest is using the Physical Science, my 6th grader is using the elementary Chemistry and Physics in the… Continue reading A Model of Olympus Mons

Amorphous Solid – Science Experiment

Hello, and happy Monday! I just wanted to pop in and show a brief video of Mitchell’s latest science experiment. He is using Apologia’s Young Explorer series, the newest book in the series, which is Exploring Creation with Chemistry and Physics by Jeannie Fulbright. This experiment was particularly fun! 🙂
