We downloaded 123dSculpt from the Windows Store and had fun manipulating little 3D figures on the computer. They had some pre-done sculpt that we could play with, and you had a great time making the figure have a big head, big arms etc, and then painting it.

We did a bunch of stuff for Science this week.  We have been focusing on Plants and Seeds and plant growth.  It was a good thing we have all kinds of plants around us that we could use for science experiments and to observe.

We managed to find all kinds of seeds - the ones that are propagated by the wind, by sticking to animals, by popping open and spreading their seeds that way, etc etc.

We had a bunch of wild sunflowers and wild grass that were intriguing and we had fun getting all the TINY little sunflower seeds off of the sunflower heads.

We had SUCH a wide variety of seeds and pods, it was KHAMAZING.

We were trying to see how the roots would grow if we turned the ziploc back upside down and what not...
