as the world turns

Science Project ::
Make a model of the earth and dissect it in order to label the interior layers.
Use materials of your choice.
.
Carly chose a styrofoam ball and felt for the continents.
She wanted to paint the outside and the inside layers,
so we chose spray paint for the outside and acrylic for the inside.
Give Carly a can of spray paint and watch out,
there is no telling what all she might paint!
.
FYI...some spray paint has acetone in it, and it will melt styrofoam.
Who knew?

.

Kenny helped her use a hand saw to cut the dowel rod (I left the room so I didn't have to watch) and then to position them on the styrofoam base.

.

Anyone else know just how big a mess styrofoam makes?

.

Carly also had a science test today.

I was encouraging her to look over her notes because "you really need to do well".

Carly said "it's okay mom, I'm going to get a 100 on my Earth project"

Nothing like a little confidence!
