Galileo

We recently finished reading Along Came Galileo by Jeanne Bendick, the same author who wrote Archimedes and the Door of Science. Both are excellent, well-written books designed to introduce children to these men's lives and ideas.

The girls also talked about Galileo in their science class at our co-op. Below are pictures of the projects they completed. Some of the gumdrops didn't survive the journey home, but you get the picture. ;-)

I like these projects!! They really illustrate the two different concepts. Good job, girls!

That's so cool! We'll be coming up on those books pretty soon. Good to know your girls enjoyed them.
