Two days. Two projects.
Grace proudly displayed her science fair project this morning as she practiced her presentation.
Which Fruit Tells Time Best?
The honest answer? We don't know. Our senses won over our sciences. We finally threw out the pineapple and watermelon even though both were still running the clocks. We got grossed out by how bad they looked and smelled.
We will leave that question unanswered along with how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Charms Tootsiepop.
The world might never know.
I found this project a little weird, but it is what the teacher wanted. He ended up with a nice two page report. He actually knew most of it from memory...more than I expected him to, but he can read his report to the class. No need to memorize.
We also sent in pictures we took last summer at the Hoover Presidential Library and Museum in West Branch, Iowa. Bonus points, maybe?
Gotta go! I'm off to Kroger. I'm all out of batteries. Now the only question is should I buy watermelons or pineapples for all of my battery needs?
