Homeschooling - Many Choices... Many Challanges
by John Edelson

One of the challenges of homeschooling education is selecting curriculum that meets the needs of each child. Many families find that what fits one child, may not fit another, or that what worked well one semester, may feel stale and stop working the next. Or in some cases, what works for one child in one subject, does not work for the same child in another subject. Well, nobody said it was going to be easy.
What most families discover is that their family's educational needs cannot be met by a single curriculum. And that blending several homeschool programs and approaches can increase effectiveness. This eclectic homeschool approach allows the optimal education for your child
Time4Learning is a great homeschool education partner because it offers each child their own learning path, with animated lessons, interactive activities, unit assessments, and integrated printable worksheets for reinforcement.

Rocketry Projects by Aurora Lipper
For every action, there is equal and opposite reaction. If you blow up a
balloon and let it go (without tying the end), the air in the balloon goes
in one direction and the balloon itself goes the opposite way. Rockets use
this same principle. The thrust going out the back end pushes the rocket
The rockets we're about to build rely on generating enough pressure and releasing that pressure very quickly. You will generate pressure by pumping in air or through chemical reactions (which generate gaseous products).
Seltzer Rockets Place an Alka-Seltzer tablet in a white Fuji film canister (black Kodak canisters won't work) and fill one-third with water. Working quickly, cap it and invert it on the sidewalk. Stand back. POP! You'll find there's an optimal water level for maximum height. If you work fast, you can get about four launches from one tablet. What happens if you try two tablets at once?
