We did tons of experiments on space and physical science this week. What is the picture of the string you ask? A balloon rocket too fast for me to catch on film. I checked out a book from the library and the kids had to pick 2 experiments a day that they could set up and carry out themselves in addition to the ones I had planned.

Battling Boredom-Civil War style
We learned that soldiers battled boredom in camp so they would do things like: checkers, dominoes, chess and poker (gambling was real popular), whittle, take pictures, sing and play instruments, smoke and drink, and pray. We didn't gamble, smoke or drink but we did have a lot of fun with the other things. The dominoes picture Daniel took with my camera and Tera took the one of the plant.
