Fun with Chalk

02 Mar

 Two days of fun and our driveway was filled with a variety of art, math, science, and engineering.


Sadie draws a picture of a cat wearing a crown and labels it, “Princess Kitty.”


Elijah creates a racetrack for his Matchbox cars.


We traced each other’s shadows with the time so we could compare how they changed as Earth rotated. Just as we finished this tracing, the sun went behind clouds for the rest of the day. I’m sure we’ll do this again another time.


Inspired by Cyberchase (insert Elijah and Sadie saying, “Yes, Mom. We know you grew up with Bianca.” here), we spent some time drawing circles and comparing/calculating radius, diameter, and circumference measurements.
