finally getting to the fun stuff!

Getting in the car after school today, Megan, who is in seventh grade, said, “Mom! We finally did something fun in science today!”

I asked what that fun thing had been and her answer came in an excited rush, “We had the periodic table of elements and we looked at the abbreviations. We had to write the atomic number, what the letter stood for, like H was for hydrogen and we wrote down the weight. Then we figured out how many protons, neutrons and electrons there there are in each one. There were one two or three (graduated) rings. We had to draw how many electrons there were...”

It’s good to know that school isn’t all academics and the kids are getting some fun and games in as well.

That's awesome. This means she still loves learning at least sometimes. That's a great thing! :)

I think her teacher deserves an award for making the periodic table fun.

Just curious, its my love of psychology and such that makes me delve into people's minds, but with her love of the periodic table, how are her feelings toward reading, math, and history? I loved English, Math, Science and hated history. Just curious. lol Glad she is excited!
