Welcome to the blog of Lighthouse Christian Homeschool!

This blog serves three purposes:

1. To have a place to 'jot down' the day to day happenings in our homeschool for our support teacher to see, in hopes that some of the things we do will fit nicely into the provincial learning outcomes.

2. To keep my family up to date on what we're 'up to'.

3. To glorify God.

So on that note, come on in!

Meanwhile in another Science class

While the other kids were doing the Materials and Structures unit, Christine was doing some cool science learning of her own. She made her own crystals and was able to compare the surface of the crystals to some rocks.

She also studied chemical weathering by putting limestone and another stone in vinegar to watch the chemical reaction of the limestone to the vinegar. She also put a ball of steel wool in the vinegar and a few days later the steel wool was completely disintegrated!

(this picture is after 1 day, we forgot to get a picture of the totally disintegrated stage)
