Candle Making

With Christmas fast approaching we thought it would be really nice if the children could make their own gift to give someone. Our school value this term is Kononia, which means fellowship.  What better time to remember fellowship than at Christmas.  We wanted the children to understand that giving isn't all about how much money you spend or spending any money, but about time you give.  Wether that is by helping someone out or spending time making something for them.  Sometimes the best gifts are the ones you make yourself.

Along the way we consolidated our Chemistry knowledge by looking at the three states of matter and we reminded ourselves about how much the Romans actually gave to us by looking at the history of Candle making.  The romans invented that too!

We had a lot of fun doing this activity and learned a lot along the way.
