The only rules were it had to be able to move on its own, beyond that it was all in what they decided.
At first there was a lot of “My car has guns and a shield…….” However as they tried out all of these uber weaponized race cars and discovered they didn’t go as far, they started taking off the weapons.
It was interesting what each kid thought was special about their cars. I think that’s one of the most amusing parts of teaching, seeing how their minds work.
As the very final activity for the day we raced them.
And of course we all have to pose for it!
We divided into two groups to race, andthe big kid race was tied between Superman and another kid.
The little kid race Princess won, and hers got the most distance of all. Her secret weapon?
It was a SLED! I didn’t think it was going to go far at all, but apparently it slid super well.
You learn something new every day!
Let’s see what others did this week:
Highhill Homeschool shared a water wheel her kids made (I’m really hoping she tells more about this, it’d be perfect for Mississippi). UPDATED: She included more detailed instructions on making it, so here it comes for Mississippi.
