This week was a particularly restful one as it's our week of rest. We follow a four weeks of school followed by one week of rest. It works really well for us and I enjoy the time off and so do my children.
In our home school this week…
- We rested and learned from our environment. We also followed up our mummification experiment.
We will be repeating this experiment as we were rather surprised by the outcomes. We used course salt. So we want to see what happens. I will do an independent post with the results of both.
