Grade 2 Week 4

How can school be anything but delightful with such a sweetheart around?

We've been trying to do least one round of "board games" before school, and the one we have been doing has been PictoFeud, which is really quite interesting.

We also got a few other apps off of the Windows 10 store, which are for making animations that are akin to flip-book cartoons.

This week we learned about various construction projects that were done during The Great Depression, like the Golden Gate Bridge,  the Empire State Building and the Hoover Dam.

We are still working on the introductory part of this year's science work, namely Scientific Methods.

You love doing experiments, even if they're simple and done in our kitchen.. this week we did one on the different densities of liquids.

We used food coloring to color our plain water, then made observations using cooking oil and thick dark soy sauce.

We also borrowed a bunch of books from the library, although we didn't get to go through as many as we would have liked to..
