History & Science Lessons for the Day

 Today we went over to Epcot.  It was a bit spur of the moment, I had been wanting to take Eli to the American Adventure at Epcot since it has been what he has been studying in history.  It is a trip through U.S. history that is narrated by the animatronic figures of Benjamin Franklin and Mark Twain.  Not only did we eat lunch by listening to the drum and fife, but we also got to experience Engineering week this week at Epcot.  Raytheon sponsors experiments that the kids can get involved with, with their Science Thrills live.  It is only this week so I decided this day fit best for us to go being I have to work Monday and Wednesday nights.  So the kids loved it!  Hezekiah got to be apart of the angular momentum experiment.  He thought that was really cool. 

 Maggie Beth also volunteered to be apart of the action.  They took a  ball and sucked the air out of it, called Magbegurg hemispheres.  With air in it, it was easy to pull it apart because the air pushes out.  But without air inside it is a lot harder to pull apart.  So Maggie helped in the tug of war!




 The kids also designed their own roller coasters at Sum of All Thrills, a continuation of Hezekiah's potential and kinetic energy lesson last week.  Eli and Hezekiah enjoyed creating their roller coaster.  I am sure it went upside down many times!  I could hear them screaming from their ride that they designed.  Maggie Beth's roller coaster was a bobsled and she named it Frozen Snowflake!  So cute! 
Sorry about the  quality of my photos, I forgot my camera today and was left to take pictures with my phone.  I  had to just capture the kids in the science performances!
