What a crazy week we had…but it was fun.
We made maps showing the migration of our favourite birds.
We hung some migrating birds over our window.
We made some movable migrating ducks.
And the boys wrote migration stories and turned them into books. (no pictures sorry.)
The Middle Ages:
This week we studied the pulley and some of its uses. We made a simple pulley system so they could understand how it works.
We then took the principle of the pulley and how it could be applied. We made water wells.
As you can see it works. 🙂
Then we took it further and made functional drawbridges in castles.
HERE is our how to for the drawbridge.
We had some friends visit from Indiana. They brought the boys some bug specimens and we visited the Earth Sciences Museum at the University of Waterloo. They had a gem and mineral show as well as a science open house.
