Weekly Wrap-Up #14


This week was like most weeks with school, dance, piano practice, Bible study, grandparents, and friends.  Today was a short school day and so we worked on a science experience.  After reading a little about Christopher Columbus and his sailing adventures, the experiment was to determine if seawater is heavier or lighter than freshwater.

We took three glasses, filled them a quarter full with water, added 2 tsp of salt to the first, 1 tsp of salt to the next, and no salt to the last.  Then we added two drops of food coloring in each. 


Notice how the food coloring in the saltiest water stays at the top.  The water is very buoyant!  Then she wrote down what she learned.


We'll be taking a trip to the library in a few minutes and then to the store to get some valentines for Monday.  I'm sure the evening will be filled with some more Valentine's Day crafts!

Thanks for Joining Our Homeschool Reviews.  For more Weekly Wrap-Up I am linked up with Kris over at Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers.
