Back to School

We started back to school after the holidays on January 7th.  I decided to tweak our science a little so the older girls were assigned all the experiments in the next  module first and then do all the reading.  The twins are learning Newton's Laws so they had an experiment where they were to mix vinegar and baking soda in a large bottle.  It was suppose to blow the cap off and shoot the other direction but they had a few problems, one of which was using baking powder instead of soda.  Also, we didn't have a 2 liter so the vinegar bottle was probably a little too large.

 Victoria was trying to boil red cabbage on a wanna be bunsen burner.  I had her do it outside because of the smell.  It was little chilly with the wind.  She was multi-tasking while watching her next math lesson.  The cabbage never boiled so she had to move it to the stovetop.
Puddin was learning about sea turtles in her science.  Here she was using her "front flippers" to pull herself along just like a female turtle does when she comes up the beach to lay her eggs.  Not the easiest thing to do!
