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!

The Fossil Record

Christine just finished learning about the fossil record in her science lessons and the experiment was to make your own fossil cast. She made a cast of a shell and, just for fun, she made one of her fingertip too.

First we make the plaster mud
 Then we pour it in the mold. We made the mold by pressing the shell into plasticine.

 Once it's dry we take the cast out of the mold
 And there it is!
 It looks just like the original!
 ..and this one does too!
