Science Is All Around

Lu recently finished the book we used for science this year. A book all about our universe. A very thick book, with lots of information and beautiful illustrations. I thought it would take him all year, but we still have two more months of our school year. But this is not a problem in my house, with my science-loving kid. Lu will be in charge of his science curriculum for the rest of the year.

He's been doing daily science experiments 
that he finds on websites and on YouTube,
like this balloon launcher:

Science projects/experiments are so much more fun 
now that Lu is old enough to find all the stuff he needs, 
follow the instructions, and research the explanations
with no help from me. lol

The homemade thermometer:

Making a saltwater battery:

 Listening through a stethoscope:

Here Lu and a friend are building a forge.
They spent all day forging metal into knives and swords.

On Sunday, we went to our friends' goat farm
and Lu got a chance to play with the little ones,
and milk one of the mamas.

He drank a WHOLE liter of goat's milk!

We're lucky to have science learning built into our every-day lives.
And there's  so much wonderful stuff to be found online.

 Science is all around!
