We had our last formal science class today that wasn't. At least we were supposed to have our last science class, which would have been a review of the ancient proto-scientists who carried on the idea of an 'atom' and Archimedes' work. With it being so close to Christmas time and the other family not being able to make it, my kids had a great time just hanging out.
I was not sure if I was going to continue. Seeing that I am researching as I go along and have to spend a lot of time preparing for each week, I thought the whole endeavor might end in the fall. The family who didn't attend today I knew would not continue into the new year anyway.
So I must have been in a very competent-feeling mood when I invited some people to start taking the course in January. I invited one of the families from girls' club.
Since we've finally moved out of the ancient times--having skipped Eratosthenes and Ptolemy, our next topic will be gravity. We'll spend a lot of time on Galileo and his pendulums and ramp experiments.
