Under Construction:Roller Coasters

Sneak Peek!

We were invited to be a part of a Science Fair at Lighthouse Learning Homeschool Co-op! The theme Is Wierd Science! I knew right away what Pie Pie would want to do! Roller Coasters! She loves them! We got right to work. We requested some books and movies from the library and she got started on her model of a roller coaster. This is just a sneak peek, I'm not going to give too much away. We have also just started on this project so there is a lot more learning to do!

The beginning of the Roller Coaster!

Pie Pie is also designing a Roller Coaster of her very own! She plans to have this built one day! Here's a picture of what two of the cars will look like. They are the Fluffy and the Sweetie!

Here's a quick fact for you! Roller Coasters started in Russia in the 1400's or 1500's. They started as ice sledding. The hills were up to seventy feet tall, very steep and were covered with snow and ice! I got this fact from a book we are reading called Roller Coasters or I Had So Much Fun, I Almost Puked by Nick Cook.

There's more Roller Coaster fun to come so visit again soon!
