106 Days of Creation

We have recently started a "Simply Charlotte Mason" study entitled 106 Days of Creation. It is a Bible study that covers the 7 days of creation, in 106 days or lessons. It integrates Bible study with science, and we are really enjoying it.

DAY 1 - We talked about light and rainbows and primary and secondary colors. We made a rainbow using the 3 primary colors and mixing them to make the secondary colors.

Alexandra remembered our prism and we went outside to make more rainbows.

Day 2 - We're talking about how God made the atmosphere. We talked about what's in the air, including oxygen, and did the experiment in the photo above. If you've never tried it, it's amazing! (Just set it up like in the photo and put the cup over the candle then watch...)

Besides the science experiments, there is almost daily Bible reading and always some discussion questions. We're also memorizing Genesis 1:1-5 and I'm sure we'll memorize some of the other verses, too.

I love that we're doing some daily, interesting science - but, it's light, too, with little planning. I just needed a break from the teacher/parent-intensive studies I usually do. And so, I'm trying to pretty much stick with their plans and not add to it like I usually do. It's really working for us!
