Back to School, back to reality!

Good friends, Good Times!
At the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens during the holidays
But for now, it's back to school - my girls don't look too sad to get back into the swing of things. Maybe it's because we LOVE to LEARN!

Making Edible Rocks

Toffee - (obisidian)
Honeycomb - (pumice)
Who knew Geography could be so much fun! We made our own "magma" and cooled it to see how different rocks are formed. Rock Recipe 1. Melt about 500g sugar with a little water in a saucepan. 2. Stir until it goes a golden brown. 3. Spoon half of the mixture onto a greased pan and let cool. 4. To the other half, add 1 teaspoon of baking powder. 5. The mixture will froth, quickly transfer to another greased pan and allow to cool. Break the mixture into pieces and there you have it edible rocks!

Making Crystals

We are back into the swing of things concerning homeschool - 2010! May this be a good, fruitful year! For Geography, we are studing minerals and how different crystals are formed. To make our own, we mixed a salt solution with red food coloring (rubies), epsom salt solution with green colouring (emeralds) and sugar solution with blue coloring (saphires). Then you hang a paper clip at the end of string in the middle of the solution for the crystals to start growing on, then the waiting game starts - at least 2 weeks. Who said school is boring?? We Love to learn!!
