Pirates Day 1

Yo ho ho and ahoy matey!
Scott School is back in (almost) full swing after the holidays.

Since Hudson received two great pirate books for Christmas I decided that a pirate unit was in order.

We did a science experiment to find the best thing to use for shining our gold (pennies).
 Placing 6 pennies in 6 cups (saving out a 7th dirty penny for comparison).
 Pouring common kitchen items on to the pennies. Water, vinegar, ketchup, lemon juice, dish soap and olive oil.
 We left the pennies for 1 hour covered by the liquids.
What did we discover?  The lemon juice worked the best to shine up our penny.
