How Does A Homeschooler Change a Light Bulb?

Okay, this is for all the homschooling mothers who never pass up a learning opportunity (or a good unit study)! 

Light BulbFirst, Mom checks 3 books on electricity out of the library, then the kids make models of light bulbs, read a biography of Thomas Edison, and do a skit based on his life.  Next, everyone studies the history of lighting methods, wrapping up with dipping their own candles.  Next, everyone takes a trip to the store where they compare types of light bulbs, as well as prices, and figure out how much change they’ll get if they buy 2 bulbs for $1.99 and pay with a five dollar bill.  On the way home, a discussion develops over the history of money and also Abraham Lincoln, as his picture is on the five dollar bill. Finally, after building a homemade ladder out of branches dragged from the woods, the light bulb is installed. And, there is light!
