Kiryn's notebook page about the battle between the Arabs and the Franks
Luke was tired and didn't want to write, but he did manage to scribble out a drawing of Charlemagne.
This week in science, we learned about earthquakes and tsunamis. We got to do a fun experiment in which we simulated an earthquake.
Here is our model town all set up and ready for it's quakes.
After a light shake, some things are dislodged and people knocked over. But mostly okay.
After a moderate shake, the buildings are sinking, some are knocked over, and people are down.
After the big shake. The whole town is destroyed.
Poor army man is trapped like the Wicked Witch of the West...
Poor Sid and Mickey are buried.
This was a really fun and informative experiment. And way easy to do! : )
Oh, and we're also growing some tadpoles. After the short monsoon, our little fountain was full of tadpoles, so the kids took their bucket and scooped some up to watch them grow at home. How exciting! I'm SOOO glad we have tadpoles living on our balcony...
