Science Day

Since the homeschooling was on the verge to finish this academic year, it was a good idea to wind up with some projects on science. Along with Thomas family, it was planned to do certain science experiments.

I got some printables from Great British Science Club. Annu did research on Solar energy,Munnu was keen on wind mill and Theresu on mini beasts and butterflies. T family did a wonderful project too. Some on Planets, sound ,magnets, plants .

It was a fabulous time for all children including parents.  Annu prepared solar energy display boards along with solar cooker,; Munnu was keen on wind energy, made a wind turbine with a motor and LED bulb, though it ended up as a still model. Theresu enjoys doing something about mini beasts especially on butterflies and butterfly feeder. Thomas family did a fabulous work too. Ended up the day with some treats and snacks.
