We follow a four year cycle for science.  This year our studies will focus on physics.

Several years ago James and I purchased six Scienceology kits: electricity, magnetism, flight, land vehicles, lights/colors/optics, and radios/phones/telecommunications.  I am finally going to make good use of them.  There are around 20 different experiments within each kit, as well as an instruction manual.  I think they will make a nice intro into physics.

Today we started our study using the Magnetism kit.  The girls wrote definitions and complete two experiments.  They made a 'metal detector' and tested various materials to determine whether or not they were magnetic.  Then we learned about induced magnetism.  Lulu and Monkey had a lot of fun making their magnetic sculptures.
