100 DAYS SMARTER!

We've done 100 days of school, "structured school" that is. As homeschoolers - they are always learning. So all those field trip days, days where they are doing math and reading in the summer, as well as the days they have been off of structured school and are learning things that interest them on their own don't count in this count. So here's to 100 days of being smarter!!

Hollow Strength

The girls had fun with this activity. You can find the activity here. They put in their guesses of how many blocks that they thought the "hollow bones" would hold. These are literally rolls of computer paper. So obviously it doesn't look that rolls of paper will hold much. Their guesses before they started were only 2 and 3 blocks. To their surprise, they were wrong. This is a great activity to show the strength of hollow bones.
