Science Lab: Three Laws of Motion (http://www.grc.nasa.gov/WWW/K-12/airplane/newton.html) w/ the following experiments:

            Eggs: we took a hard boiled egg and a raw egg and spun them to determine what happens to the egg when you place a finger on the egg to stop the spinning, and then remove your finger quickly. The raw egg continues to move because of the liquid inside is still moving.

            Dominoes: we stacked 6 dominoes high and took a metal ruler, and attempted to knock out the bottom Domino with disturbing the stack.  

            Coins: I taped two rulers on the counter and had 6 pennies. I placed 5 pennies about an inch from the end of the ruler and then I had her took the one penny (then two and three), and hit with force the other pennies in the row.

            Another coin experiment where we placed a stack of coins (nickel, dime, quarter and penny) by size on a piece a paper and she pulled the paper out from underneath to see if she could not move the stack of coins.

For each Science station I created, she then wrote in her journal her hypothesis of what she thought would happen, supplies used, the experiment, the outcome of the experiment tried in various ways, and also which Law applied to the experiment and why she thought so.

Through this lab, I am introduced the beginnings of Science experiments and working with hypothesis, etc. with her. PLUS, my daughter now knows how to tell if the egg is raw or boiled. LOL.

History – The cuneiform script is first known forms of written expression. Today we stepped back into approx. 3000 BC and took a look at the life of the Sumerians. They were the first known civilization after the flood. These people had or possibly invented the wheel, flushing toilets, irrigation systems, etc… which was discovered through the “Royal Tomb” in the early 1920’s by Sir Leonard Woolley. For a project, I looked up my daughter initials (http://www.upennmuseum.com/cuneiform.cgi) and she created a cuneiform from an air-dry clay tablet that she created.

4-H introductory meeting where we meet the other homeschooler in the group and discussed positions and the requirements for the club. We will be using “Christian Kids in Chemistry.”
