We started out the school year using Thames and Kosmos kits for our science. I’ve changed things up a bit, not because the T&K kits aren’t working, but because they required a bit more planning than I can dedicate to science right now. Since I had used Rainbow Science with great success with my oldest child, I went back to Rainbow Science. It is a great program that is easy to utilize. So the T&K kits are still in the garage, and most likely will be enjoyed next year. This season of life calls for something a little bit different.
We completed quite a few labs this past week starting out with the classic balloon/hair static electric lab. E-R’s hair provided lots of electrical charge and the balloons stuck to the ceiling for almost an entire day.
After learning about electricity, we had fun with our Enviro Battery Kits.
I-E started out the game in good spirits, but soon lost enough protons
