Kitchen counter science—the particulate nature of matter

It was so dark today that we had to have the lights on to read, even at one in the afternoon.

The train has now eaten our piano room.

Calvin started and finished a number of Magic Tree House books, then went on a "Jack and Annie" exploration of the house, complete with backpack and notebook.

And when it seemed like the day was going to slip away, Calvin decided it was time for science.

Kitchen counter science. A mess of household stuff, and more stuff. We dove directly into the fourth lesson in BFSU, and the solids, liquids, and gases kit from the Young Scientist Series. And when we finished we had a mess of homemade slime and a bubbling cauldron of everything that was within reach. And possibly a new understanding of the particulate nature of matter.
