- Using a round watermelon with a circle of red construction paper taped on to represent Jupiter.
- I was explaining that the reason why we don't eat tuna as much as we used to is because of mercury (the metal). Then Wild Thing replies "And the Venus"
- The baking soda/vinegar volcano (with red food coloring)
- The hurricane tube
- The Crafter insisting that she will always think of Pluto as a planet no matter what the astronomers say.
So far I have been pleased with Apologia's materials. They are Christian, colorful, factual, internet linked, and have fun, doable activities. I plan to use more of them with Wild Thing and Sweetie when they get old enough. Unfortunately, the Crafter has had to endure my experiments with other curricula. For more information go to http://www.apologia.com.
Next we will start our study of weather and oceans using Our Weather and Water by God's Design. It is published by Answers in Genesis. http://www.AnswersInGenesis.org/curricula It definitely falls into my "good but dull" category. I'll have to spend more time searching for library books and internet sites to supplement this one.
