Most Friday's we take a break from our regular school work and try to do more puzzle/game type stuff. Things that get them learning without them even realizing it. This past Friday we pulled out some puzzles and did a fun Lego experiment with our Lego Education set. All the kids really got into it...super fun to watch!
|Vann picked a dinosaur puzzle...he busted it out pretty quickly!|
|And Chayce helped Ash with a firetruck puzzle however Ash had other plans for his puzzle pieces haha! He was throwing them in the air...silly boy :)|
|Usually Ash is very into puzzles, but today not so much.|
|He just kept throwing the pieces in the air lol.|
For this Lego experiment the boys built a car with a flywheel. Then they tested it on their track and measured how far it rolled with different combos of tires on it. It was a lot of fun and they really enjoyed it!
|Ash built his own Lego car and had to test it out too :)|
|They were great about taking turns pushing the car and recording their data.|
|He had to record the results too!|
|So for each car they tested first they predicted how far it would go and then they did 3 runs, recording the results after each run. Then they would try a new combo of wheels and do it again.|
|It wasn't long before all the kiddos were watching them do their experiment!|
|I loved how Ash wanted to be just like his big brothers :)|
|And as he scribbled, he would say 65 or whatever the distance was...it was cute!|
