...even if he is showing off his car.
Josiah and I came up with a fun project for our co-op class tomorrow (from this excellent book) and I am crossing my fingers that this one will be a hit. Our last two classes have been OK, but I don't think I have captured their scientific-attention as of yet. With 15 rowdy boys to keep busy, I get a little nervous.
We will be building our cars and souping them up (Josiah said it is not called "decorating" a car) for the car race at the next co-op. We will be learning about potential and kinetic energy, as well as friction and motion. Since I know NOTHING about those topics, I am glad for the book's overview. Maybe I will appear to know what I am talking about!
Personally, I think these cars are rather cool:
The fact that they actually move will be a plus with the boys! ;)
Here is my other boy trying to duck away from my camera:
I caught him just before he turned away! Please excuse his messy look, but he just got home from work with dad.
Wish me luck at co-op tomorrow. I need it!
