After story time we read a book about Salt, we looked at salt under a magnifying glass, under the microscope and read a book about it. Now the boys ask at the table, "Can you please pass the Sodium Chloride?" :)
About a week before we read the book, Isaac had read it and done an experiment to make salt crystals. He loves science...he requested that we study chemistry this year for school so that is what we are doing!
