Billy's week 15th May, 2011

Experimenting:

We made bread to watch how yeast performed - love Science that you get to eat :)

We had some success with making a tea bag rocket (this has been an ongoing project - to see it work properly check out http://youtu.be/VdzPix9CKck)



Watching:

Backyard Science, Cyberchase, Behind the News, For the Juniors (Human Body)

We headed down to Sydney Opera House to see Bell Shakespeare's Much Ado about Nothing.  It was Billy's first exposure to Bell Shakespeare - he enjoyed it despite it not finishing til after 10pm - it went for 2hrs 40 minutes.


While in Sydney, we also headed off to watch a game of AFL at the SCG. 



Discussing:

The water cycle - evaporation, condensation and how it occurs naturally
Nutritional labels and how to read them

Being active:

Dragons martial arts, AFL training, archery


Having Fun:

Exploring Minecraft, Club Penguin, Webkinz, Lego, playing on the Wii
Drama

On-line learning:

Learning about Chance using Skwirk

Making:



He made a rather impressive stool at Cubs - he hasn't had much opportunity to do wood-work so I was quite impressed with how he did!

Great stool! And I'm off to look at the actual tea bag rocket. I'm intrigued!
