I love my family and enjoy spending time with them! We tried to have kids for 8 years and finally were blessed to adopt to wonderful children from S. Korea so I'm passionate about adoption. Now that they are getting a little bit older I homeschool them and we have wonderful adventures learning, right now we are studying all about Egypt and we are even mummifying a chicken!
In our homeschool curriculum we are doing a unit study on Egypt! So far the kids have loved this unit, we worked on Pyramids last week and it was a lot of fun. We experimented with straws to make different types of pyramids and to help figure out the volume. Then, we played with cards to make tessellations which are pyramids that fit together without any gaps. Today we are working on a sugar cube pyramid and will have pictures later in the week once it's finished!
Makenzie built a tetrahedron pyramid which is a triangular based pyramid
Kylan built a square-based pyramid which is the most common pyramid
We experimented with other shapes to show that pyramids are very strong
We also figured out that 3 pyramids could fit inside of the cube!
