Apologia: Eggs

The last few days have been perfect weather for outdoor learning.
The sunshine has been amazing and has helped me find the motivation to really jump back into all of our subjects.

We started our day with Apologia, which we hadn’t done since before Christmas. (We are still ahead in Apologia because we started it before anything else, in June and it is also a relatively short curriculum.)

We did a quick review over nests and the girls decided to build their own nests.

This is Emersyn’s hand showing how large her nest is.

Today’s lesson was on eggs.

We each took an egg and broke the pointy end open, emptied and rinsed it. Then we looked for the air pocket and inner and outer membranes.

It was quite a chore trying to keep the membranes in tact while peeling the shell gently away from it.

Next, we tested our strength by trying to break an egg with our bare hands, by just squeezing it.

Eggs are much tougher than you would think.

 Even after all of that squishing, the eggs still didn’t break!

Where was Bear in the midst of all the outdoor learning?

Mostly just hanging out, enjoying some down time with his pup, Ruby.
