LEGO Mechanics

William has a bit of a LEGO obsession going on, fueled in good part by the many LEGO sets that he got for Christmas and his Birthday. Along with making his own creations, he loves following the instructions that come with the sets - seeing all of those little pieces come together into something so intricate and detailed, especially when they have moving parts. One of his favorite gifts that he got this year was a book that comes with LEGO pieces, teaching all about mechanics. It is full of gears, pulleys, cranks, and other goodies. This morning's projects included a spinney-top launcher, and this grabber.....lots of fun. He requested this morning that we just skip all of the addition and subtractions 'stuff' and move right onto physics........
