If you have read my blog before you will know that I am home schooled, and if you have not, well you do now. for my experiment I was able to put dry ingredients with liquid ingredients and then I had to see what happens, how awesome and such a fun thing to do with two hours of my life! As I’m setting up my experiment one of the steps was to crush a piece of chalk with a mortar and pestle. 1) I hate chalk 2) I hate mortar and pestles 3) I hate crushing chalk with a mortar and pestle. So this experiment did not start out ok. The chalk I had was like a jumbo size and I needed a little piece of it for my experiment so I went outside and chucked it on the ground well this chalk was not any ordinary chalk it was an indestructible piece of chalk, and I ended up having to chase the chalk around the driveway until it broke apart. If I was 5, I would be the coolest kid because I had super chalk!
Then after about five minutes of wasteful time and practically dying from crushing the chalk using the mortar and pestle, Rebecca had a wonderful idea to use a hammer. (this is where my laughing began)
Then came the experiment of mixing the ingredients which was pretty boring and I will not put you through that horror of having to read about it.
Thanks to my chemistry class I have learned one veryimportant thing:
When a child would like to use chalk they must wear protective gloves and protective safety goggles because that stuck if just plain dangerous.
