First Science project - Volcano

I must blog about this to credit 爷爷。Last fri, RA was given a project to do, to build a volcano model using recycled materials. I must admit that I was not very pleased when I read about the assignment on her comm book.

There is the usual weekend homework for eng, chi n maths every Friday. Why add on a project? Weekends are busy enough with ballet, music n swimming lessons. Really no spare time to do projects. This type of homework should have given during long weekend like next week's NDP long weekend.

When the gals wanted to stay over at ILs place on Sat, i jokingly told RA to ask 爷爷 to help her with the volcano model because we don't have time to do it with her since she does not want to go home. And 爷爷 really rose to the occasion. He did such a nice volcano model using recycled pet bottle and masking tape that RA got a message from Teacher Laila that it was a job well done. If I were to do it, I would probably have just moulded a volcano shape using crushed newspapers or brown paper. Definitely would not have bothered to cut up the plastic bottle. But now, all I needed to do was touch up with a red marker to show the lava. ;)
