Grace and I had lots of fun with her chocolate study. We finished up the study by making no-bake cookies this morning. Though it’s been a very interesting unit study, I’ll be glad to return to a house without so much junk food! (Grace probably doesn’t agree. )
In other chocolate study news, we’ve tallied the results of our chocolate survey both here and on Facebook. You probably won’t be stunned to know that milk chocolate was the overwhelming winner with 50% of the votes. Sweet dark chocolate came in a distant second with 30.5% of the votes. Semisweet chocolate had 11.5% of the votes. Bittersweet and white chocolate tied with 4% each.
I think we’ll post Grace’s story about waking up as an m&m tomorrow. Other exciting things for tomorrow? We’ll be starting our study of owls! Woohoo!

Not much to look at, but they’re delicious!
Grace has been working on “how to” paragraphs and sequence of events in her writing. She thought sharing one of her favorite recipes would be a great sample for both. Enjoy!

Last week Grace and I made cottage cheese as part of a science lesson. The process was super-easy (all you need is milk, lemon juice, and cheese cloth), but the results were less-than-delicious.
We had a fabulous week of school! :D
