that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.

Recycling Plant Part 1

We took our last field trip with our homeschool group this week. We went to a recycling plant. Being on an island it helps to recycle so that there aren't piles of garbage everywhere. I am not a big "save the earth" kindof person, nor am I a big recycling person, but I can see the need for recycling here.

These are solar panels that the recycling plant uses.

The top number is what the plant is making in energy...with the solar panels.
The next number is what the plant is using in energy.
And the third number is the energy they are selling to the community.

This is the claw picking up the junk...reminds me of toy story

This is the actual size of the claw

I posted some links to some fun activities, and we tried 2 of them. So I thought I would post some photos of them. The balloons were a BIG hit. I think we will do those again. Even our teenager enjoyed them...turns out breaking ice is fun, no matter what age you are.  :)

We also built with marshmallows and toothpicks. The kids liked it, but some of the structures were hard to hold up...maybe because of the humidity here, or maybe we need to practice our building. But it was fun.

If anyone tries these activities, I would love to hear how they turn out.  :)
