During my the last few weeks, I have been finalizing my dissertation. To ease my homeschooling load, I allowed my children to develop their own unit studies without regard to grade level of books or activities. This time was to enjoy learning, explore interests, reinforce concepts already learned, and experience learning based on their own learning style. My oldest, MightyMan, who is in 7th grade, chose to do an Engineering & Physics Unit Study.
The books he chose are available on Amazon in the links below or in the products section of my site. These may also be available at your local library. We did find these at the Indianapolis Library.
He has explored topics from simple machines to highly complex engineering wonders. He has explored with hands-on Lego activities to watching videos on YouTube. Below is the Lego Simple Machines Kit he has been working with.
