My boys have been very busy with their schoolwork. Connor completed his science book for this year about a month ago, and Blake just finished up his! Does this mean they get science off until next year? No way! They will both continue to read science based books from our reading list and start their next science books early.
One of Blake’s final experiments dealt with pinecones and how wonderfully God designed nature.
He first took a pinecone and soaked it in cold water. Gradually the pinecone closed itself completely against the cold.
Next, he placed the pinecone in a pan and left in the oven at 250 degrees for a couple of hours.
Here’s what happened.
It warmed up and opened up. Amazing! I did not know this would happen.
That was a day we both learned something new!
Don’t forget, there’s still time to link up to the That’s The Ticket Blog Hop Party and enter the giveaways!
