DIY Water Clock

DIY Water Clock

We have been working on a unit study with Robots. One of the things that I thought was pretty neat was we made a water clock. Making your own Water Clock is easy and the nice thing is you can incorporate doing things to see how long it takes you.

The Ancient Egyptians made water clocks that were bowls filled with water and it had small holes that the water would leak out. This was used to tell time. There were lines in the bowl that they were able to see where the water level was to be able to tell the time.

Edible Outer Layers of the Sun Project – #STEM

Edible Sun

We are currently working on the sun, and I decided to incorporate a STEM project into my daughters learning. The project we did was making edible outer layers of the sun. She currently is learning about how hot the sun is, the gravity, how big the sun is, and so forth. In future lessons we go further into learning about the sun. We watched a few videos on YouTube to learn more before we did our project.

How To Make The Softest Playdough Ever

Softest Playdough

Friday night we had some storms barrel through Wisconsin. At about 9:00 PM we lost our cable and internet. In a way I was glad we lost it as it gave us some time to do things to get away from all that screen time. My daughter and I have been wanting to make different types of play dough. I came across a soft play dough that only required 2 ingredients. My daughter spent hours playing with the play dough.
