On this day we spent most of our time in the barn where there are lots of hands on activities to help explain Sir Issac Newton's theories.
|So pleased that my kids remember so much of what we have been learning in our physic class and last year's study of the solar system as they were able to answer many of the questions posed to the group|
|This one confused my two as this is the primary colors of light not paint, so I need to go back and revisit this to explain the difference|
|gravity--light ball vs heavier ball|
|counterfeit coins and Sir Issac Newtons role in the Royal mint|
|Sample of what we are trying to build and race|
|Tracing out the pattern on card stock|
|folding paper into shape|
|adding mouse trap and duct, taping it down securely|
|Admiring our car and getting ready to race it|
|Unfortunately the kids cars did not do well in the races, as in they didn't even move:( However we were able to see others have successful races and cheer them on|
|The winning car|
We had a great time and we plan on tweaking our cars at home and see if we can get them to work at home.
