Home school projects

Postby SWAT » Wed Mar 25, 2020 12:32 am

Technically still spring break here but as the kids are getting bored of not being able to socialize we are starting our home schooling early. Today was physics, built a rocket from a kit. Supposedly capable of 1000ft. Not sure if it made the whole 1000ft or not but it did disappear out of sight before partially returning to earth when the parachute deployed around the 500ft mark and the wind decided to take it away. Tomorrow will be chemistry, teaching the kids 9, 9, and 12 how to make a rum mash and a honey whiskey mash to be jarred in a couple weeks time. Pics to follow. Thursday will be mapping and geography when we go looking for the rocket. 

What are you guys doing for home school projects?

My kids have grown up but your post reminds me of launching a rocket with them when they were little. Several launches went fine. Up it went and then down it came on the parachute. Then we tried a more powerful propulsion charge. The thing took off like a bullet and went clear out of sight! We never saw it again. Good memories.

Ya we are still looking. Live on top of a hill so pretty hard to determine just how far it drifted
