The Week with a Mad Scientist!

weekly report

SCIENCE: Ken helped Lindsey with another experiment this week involving the density of salt water to make an egg float. Kathryn was the salt dispenser, so she got to help a bit, too. The instructions always say to wear safety goggles, even though I think the worst that might happen in this particular experiment would be to get a little salt in your eye, but Ken brought out the safety goggles for Lindsey to wear. 😉

CURRENT EVENTS: Every time a God’s World News magazine comes in the mail, this is what I see of Kathryn until she’s read most of it:

MATH: Kathryn has deemed sixth grade Teaching Textbooks math “fun” and finds actually using the textbook to write in (where the problems are already printed out for her) much easier than last year, when she used scrap paper to write out every problem. Lindsey is [just barely] surviving geometry proofs. On her end-of-chapter test, she did pretty well and understood most of the concepts, but her answer to the last question made me laugh out loud.

Need a little happy news story? I saw this story in People magazine while sitting in the dentist’s office last week, and had to find it when I got home so I could share it: “A Boy Scout Troop with a Difference.
