The Tiny Tumbleweed House
My last project was to create a tiny version of a tumbleweed house. A tumbleweed house is basically a tiny house, it's a one room house with a loft above. Many people chose to live in cute little tumbleweed houses! Personally, I think they are adorable and decided to make a model of one. '

This was inspired by the homework last night. It is a representation of the effective of drops of solution being added toa solution.
