Salt, Sweat & Sweets


Eye from the Storm

What a full week! In science, we made rain in a couple different ways. 

Condensation in the classroom

Condensation in a bowl

The storm in the bowl demonstrated the complete water cycle and... 

...a survival strategy..., desalination. It turns out that evaporation only happens with pure liquids, so no salt or contaminates occur in water condensation. Think about it; you ever taste salty rain? Nope.

We grew a crop of millet in one week to run some water-related experiments.


And we ate some millet too. I actually eat a lot of millet, so the kids tasted the day's lunch.

In social studies, we're studying early human migration. Sweat was an adaptation that allowed us to be more effective hunters in hot conditions.

We played with measurements (meters and centimeters) during math. 

Double half, crawl less. Smart! 

Who knew?

So many measurement possibilities

In language arts, we drafted and revised essays together.
