Meteorology Study & Christmas Sachets

This week in science we are studying meteorology. Today we made our own homemade thermometer and an anemometer (a tool used to measure wind speed).

In History we have been learning about Christmas in America in the 1700's and 1800's. Today we did a fun project from the book we have been reading and made scented sachets. We used dried scented herbs I had dried from our garden this past summer and added a little bit of scented oils to make them a little more fragrant. We cut squares of fabric using pinking shears to help prevent the edges of the fabric from fraying and then filled the center of the fabric with our scented dried herbs. We used lemonbalm, peppermint, and lilac (not altogether though lol). Then bundled and tied each one with a strip of lace ribbon. :)
