This morning, Adam turned over the blogging responsibilities on "Kenning Through Astronomy Divine" to Anna. She's a blogger now! She's enjoying it very much. It makes her (in a fun way) describe in detail (with photos) the things she's learning in science class, and it gives her some valuable hands-on work in computer use/technology. She learned a lot this morning.
So, to blog with my baby girl, here are a couple of photos of Julia, taken recently while she did a science project on understanding rockets.
After a bit of trial and error, she had success in getting the balloon to shoot up the string, when its air was released on the bottom. A simple project, but effective. This is the third project she's done (almost entirely on her own) this year. I like this science curriculum for her. She concentrates so much better with hands-on work. Today she used an abacus in math for the first time (as did I!), and found it fun and effective in doing the math.
