Science and the Library

We utilize our local library a ton.  It is a regular thing to find what seems to be 100’s of library items on our library shelves.  We are so thankful for our local library and the children’s librarians who help us find just about anything!

One of our favorite science series is the Let’s-Read-And-Find-Out About science series.  There are two levels that we have used:  one for Kindergarten and one for first and second grade.  While they are secular, I have found that they don’t deal a ton with evolution.  The ones that do have become a talking point for us about God and His design for the universe in contrast to man’s design for the universe.

Here are some of our favorites:

The Making of a Clay Pot

So for Week 1 we were supposed to make a clay pot.  We just now got around to doing it.  So here are some video clips for your viewing entertainment.

The first week of school we studied how the Bible was written by the original authors and how scrolls were made by papyrus and such.  They were stored in jars so here we are trying to make a jar.

Sorry the audio is not so good.  I don't know how to get it any louder.
