We had a little science fun yesterday! I let the boys, Tornado (3) and Super J (6) take apart some small appliances and get up close and personal with the guts. I saw this a few weeks ago somewhere (my memory fails me-- sorry!) and they called it "Reverse Engineering", which I really liked!
It was all kinds of awesome! We took apart a can opener, a calculator and a clock. (The clock parts will be re purposed for us to make our own clock to help with learning to tell time.) And we soon will be making a trip to the goodwill store to purchase some more items to work on. We are keeping all the little pieces and will figure out a use for them at a later point in time.
