This has got to be one of the grossest things my kids have ever done. We have watched a lot of "Survivorman" lately. Lee Stroud talks about boiling his water and making it pure. Josh decided to try it. He grabbed a handful of dirt, put it in a pot of water and boiled it. I made him take the big chunks out and taught him how to use a cheesecloth. By the end of the process it still looked murky. He said he wanted to make hot chocolate out of it. I told him, "I don't know...", But you know boys. "It's fine, Mom", he says. Ugh! Here's a little video of the end result (Sorry Facebookers, you will to click on "View Original Post" to see this video). He ended up raving about how wonderful it was!
I guess this is what makes homeschooling fun! Even though I think it might be horrid, I guess they sometimes have to learn on their own.
