Homeschool: Science Friday

We played with Microscopes today!

The children gathered all kinds of tiny things from the backyard, and lined up to take a peak:

We loved how ordinary things we love, like flowers and dirt and weeds and pine needles look so magical close up!

It was maybe one of the best parenting moments ever, to see their little faces in awe and excitement of what they discovered!

We even introduced some stains and prepared slides, too:

But all of that just made them want to see more, so we found some leaves and bits of ribbon, too:

They did a great job on their reports!

Next time we will look at ingredients from the kitchen!

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
