We did science!

Today was our first day of science.  I was feeling quite overwhelmed with the idea of science this year and begged asked a friend to join us.  She brought her new microscope (I want one!) and we had a good time putting celery and onion skin on slides for viewing.  I bribed the 2yo with Moose Tracks ice cream so that she'd keep her hands off of the microscope, slides, cutting knives, dye, workbooks, students, everything else.  They kids made a sketch of their onion skin cells and then quickly ditched the science table.  They spent the next hour or two playing.

I plan to do science reading and writing with the kids later this week.  There is still a little more info from day 1 science to do (but they were too busy playing to pay attention).
