Raising the Phoenix: Chronicles of Homeschooling and Motherhood

  • When Life Gives You Lemons…Make Lemon Batteries!

    This month, Phoenix has chosen to study electricity for science. We have been reading some pretty awesome books about electricity (check out the recommended reading below), and I am unashamed to say that I am just as excited as he is about all that we have been learning! In addition to great books, we also have some super cool hands-on projects lined up. Our first experiment involved powering a mini alarm clock with two lemons. This project provided an interactive introduction to how circuits work, and it also showed him how something simple like fruit can be used as a power source.
