· Define: Pure Metals, Alloys, Hemoglobin, Anemia, Rust, Extracted, Annealing, Corrode, Tarnish
· Activity 4 – Types of Metals: An investigation into the Alkali Metal Group was conducted.
· Activity 5 – Table of Metals: We are collecting data about metals from the periodic table.
· Activity 6 – Pure Metals: This is basically an experiment testing the magnetic properties of coinage. We put the Daddy's collection of pre-Euro European coinage to the magnet and determined that three-quarters of these coins were non-magnetic (and a surprising number were). And everyone cheered that no one was injured in the process of actually learning. (green mega magnet and coin collection)

LHW = Little History of the World by Gombrich (which we tend not to use that much, but this chapter was very helpful.)
To those of you who are familiar with The Story of the World by Dr. Bauer, these sources will be on your shelf. Otherwise, this may tell you that we are discussing Things Ottoman this week, and that makes me very comfy based on my crazy familiarity with Turkish and Middle Eastern Studies.
