Peters Science Kit came today! Yippee! Christian Light Education offers a science kit to go with their science book. The kit is made up of every thing that will be needed throughout the year for the particular grade level. We opened it and it was filled with lovely things, like, balloons, tuning fork, dirt, seeds, beakers, thermometers, dirt, different kinds of rock, paper cups, magnifying glass, etc.
Now sure I have most of that stuff around here but it was worth it to me to pay 30 dollars for the kit just to know that everything would be at my fingertips when Peter gets to that particular experiment.
After that arrived today in the mail my husband told me that he has ordered a Science Box online for Peter. It's designed to teach the principles of electronics to children. Here's the way it is advertised:
The easy-to-handle components snap together to create up to 500 different electronic experiments.He is going to be thrilled when it arrives!
Create circuits that involve magnets, water, sound, light and touch.
Create circuits that make a light bulb flash, motorized fan, sound effects, recording voice, AM Radio, Burglar Alarm, Traffic Lights, display letters and numbers.
Peter earned $10 stacking wood for the neighbor the other night. He spent it at the homeschool store on a box of plaster stuff and forms for making volcanoes, or planets, or dogs and cats even! That boy loves Science! But then what boy doesn't.
The other day a friend of mine asked Peter what his hobby was and he said, "Extension cords!" I about split. How true! I'm forever taking them out of his bedroom. He has them strung from one end to the other connecting radios, Cd player, lights, and clocks.
Man, I love that kid! Cant wait until he sees his new Science stuff!
