Science Monday

Once a month we will be meeting with a few other families and doing a little science exploration.
We will be slowly familiarizing ourselves with the periodic table.
This week we touched a bit on Carbon.
M found out that Carbon is in everything.
We made a Bucky ball.
We made Carbon based paint like our prehistoric ancestors might have. They used plaint oil and soil, and plant oil and charred wood.
We used veg shortening and soil, and veg shortening and fireplace left overs. 
They dug it up,
 and smashed the wood bits.
Carbon!
Painting like a Cavechild.
The boys liked science Monday as well. K wanted to do his work at home. He wasn't feeling very participatory that day. But he was patriotic!
