I have had the request to study Chemistry since last school year from Aric (4th grade), so he was pretty happy to see what we would be doing for science this year. Also, I decided this lab kit was something that would be super helpful in doing all the experiments. We have made it through the first lesson, and it was pretty cool to have everything in one place.
We did almost every experiment in the first lesson which involved matter, density, volume, and mass. They enjoyed making foil boats to see if they would float with pennies.
A lot of experiments involving salt. Yes the kit came with salt, but since we had 2 boys doing their own experiment simultaneously we needed to grab our own salt as we ran out.
|He finally got the layers of different salt dentsity colors to work!|
These salt experiments helped us to look at density a little closer.
They discovered what the egg would do in the salt water for this experiment!
It has been fun to get into our science this school year with Apologia. There is a great round-up of resources and ideas for this book at Homeschool giveaways and freebies. I may use many of these for the rest of the school year!
I am linking this up with ABC Blogging through the alphabet at Hopkins Homeschool.
