Welcome back to Module 4 and The Wonder of Water.     Due to lack of test tubes, we skipped Experiment 4.1  The Chemical Composition of Water.     ….and, since we are being honest,  we don’t have pictures to all the labs. Somewhere along the line I put the camera down and didn’t pick …
    I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing Guide to Animals and Creation Basics from Institute for Creation Research (ICR).  Both of these books are well organized with spectacular photographs and clear explanations all from a Biblical Worldview.   ICR’s latest offering, Guide to Dinosaurs, follows these same high standards while maintaining evidence for a …

  Welcome back!   Today we are learning more about the atmosphere.   Experiment 3.1  Atmospheric Pressure   This experiment is to show that atmosphere actually does exert pressure on everything it touches.     After putting a small amount of water in an aluminum can, place the can in the frying pan on “high” …
