So just a quick Thank You to those who helped in my moment of having a blog identity crisis! After much thought and reading your comments, I decided to keep it as is and just add a subtitle : ) Thank you for reminding me that the content is what makes it what it is! I appreciate you taking time to write your comments and I am glad I am not the only one that has had this crisis ; )
Now onto our next FIAR selection!! We read, "Mirette on the High Wire" by Emily Arnold McCully.
- Chemical Reaction Experiment-- in the first page of the book, we see Mirette's mother working in the kitchen surrounded by her copper pans. The FIAR manual suggested talking about the element Copper, and so I found a couple experiments using pennies. In one experiment we used vinegar to turn a penny green, and in another we used lemon juice to make the penny shine once again; no pictures because our experiment didn't work. Oh well!
Stilts for Dr. Seuss: making stilts looked like fun, but we never got around to it.
