Learning Can Be Fun

This year we have been involved in a homeschool co-op. We are loving it. We are focusing on art, service projects, phys. ed., science and Ohio history. We meet twice a month and usually have a field trip scheduled each month also. An added bonus is the fellowship we have with the other families.
Josh and Isaac reading their Ohio report. Next, they had the group play Ohio Jeopardy. If you answered a question correctly you got a Dum Dum sucker because they are made in Ohio.
A fun science experiment: placing Mentos Mints into Diet Coke to create an explosion of sorts. When the Mentos hits the surface of the coke, the compressed carbon dioxide forms bubble on the surface of the Mentos and it is released into the air and pushes the Coke out with it. Luckily, it was a beautiful spring day for this outside only experiment.
