We tried an experiment to show how a chemical reaction from salt and vinegar should shine up a penny. But, it didn't work out too well for us. I think I used the wrong kind of salt. The experiment said to use regular table salt, and I used Sea Salt. Not sure if that would make a difference or not, but it didn't really do anything for the pennies.
This past week, we decided to take a break from our CTG studies as we get ready for Christmas. Instead, we concentrated on a bit of spelling and reading, did some Christmas themed word finds, and watched some Science related videos on You Tube. One day, we learned about the Solar System. Another day, we watched a glass making demonstration. We also made goodies for Christmas to hand out to our neighbors, and made some homemade presents as well. Here is one that Coyote made for his sister. She loves dogs, so he made this for her out of pipe cleaners. He came up with the idea and the design all by himself! I love his creativity.
Merry Christmas to you all!
