Started this morning by pulling a Child’s History of the World from the shelf. Chapters 14 to 17 were on the docket. A nursing baby allowed us to make it through the first two and we might have made it further except Sister called a halt to everything for a lengthy discussion on Spartan vs Athenian society. (She much prefers Athenian ways and I am inclined to agree.)
With history attempted for the day, we moved on to science. By combining wire, a straw and a large battery we manufactured a solenoid.
With our creation we were then able to create a train signal that actually moved.
And if your going to have a train signal then you must have a train
which of course will need a track.
It’s possible that your train set will have a duck crossing sign.
If it does you will be obligated to have ducks.
Your ducks will, of course, need a pond
and people to feed them fake bits of bread.
Your pond will probably be near some trees
and what are trees without birds in them.
I love it when class schedules are determined by imagination and clocks are for timing trains.
