5th Grade Fun

Drama Queen came home with an assignment, make a simple circuit.
Huh?
I can help with the math but that is something that sounded like a good Daddy-Sissy project.
What I love about those two putting their minds together is that they come up with some really cool things.
So with a couple of trips to Home Depot and several switches, wires and light bulbs later they ended up with a working circuit. Now the fun really began. Drama Queen got out the Legos and began to form, something, but then it turned into a masterpiece.
A very proper Lego home for our little Lego man, complete with a mailbox and a tree in the yard.

Best part is that is lights up so cool in the dark.


Day of the showing all the 5th graders got to display their items. I went around to see what others had done and I still thought hers was the best. Definitely no favoritism here.

We have another great teacher this year and here she is. Thanks Mrs D for another fun event for the kids and the big kids too.

What a fun project! Wow, she is really good with the lego creations, I can only make a tower. How clever they both are to do a "light up" lego house. Good Daddy daughter time.

Great job on the circuit, but A++++ for going the extra mile and lighting up Lego Man's house!

I loved the pictures. Isn't it THE best when your child has a great teacher?
