Summer Science - AIG Machines and Motion Units 5 and 6

I respectfully ask that you not pin pictures of my children to Pinterest. Thank you!
We're finishing AIG's Machines and Motions. In unit 5, we learned about circular and periodic motion by observing circular motion,
Nobody got wet! :)

playing with a gyroscope,
observed spring action,
"Slinky, slinky, it's such a wonderful toy..."
and making a pendulum.
We skipped observing centripetal force but we discussed the experiment.

In unit 6, we learned about the use of machines by trying to create a structure using toothpicks instead of hands to lift the blocks.

We skipped building research in lesson 31, observing natural machines in lesson 32, and scientist research in lesson 34.
And with that, we finished our summer science. Woo-hoo! 
Soprano will have an easier school year which I'm sure she'll enjoy. Tenor will have another science during the year but it doesn't look too intense. We'll see how it goes... we start on Monday!
