Last week, we had a district benchmark in science, and we were a few days behind in the curriculum, so we did a cram session on mixtures and solutions. The thing I love about science is how engaged the kiddos are! They don't even realize they are learning as they mix substances and decide the best way to separate them. Big words like "solute" and "solvent" aren't so scary when they realize it's really just salt and water. (If you haven't noticed, science is my favorite subject to teach!)

If you're wondering how I broke my finger, it's a fairly dumb story. I tried to grab a 40-pound dog by the collar while she was wet, and running at me full-speed. The best part of the story is the X-ray. Close your eyes if you are easily offended! I swear it's legit.
|Yes, it's TOTALLY the finger you think it is - which is why the X-ray is so awesome!|
