Rachel created a cereal box book report for 4th grade that is due today, and recorded a summary of her project this morning.
Rachel wrote this note to me last night about YouTube.com/ASAPscience. Coincidentally, she discovered it as a related YouTube video on her sister’s account, and I discovered it today via Richard Byrne’s post.
Rachel created this “Me Cube” this week in school. These are four of the sides she decorated.

Marie and two other scientists won the Nobel Prize in physics. In 1910, she isolated radium in the form of a metal. Marie […]
In this screencast, 10 year old Rachel takes us on a guided tour of Club Penguin. I asked Rachel to do this because this morning, she shared how she had created an igloo to be like a funeral scene for a puffin in the game. The father of one of Rachel’s older sister’s friends died […]
