"All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them."
The kids were thrilled to see the Galileoscope arrive this week. We waited until Saturday to put it together. One thing I suggest if you have one arriving soon, download the instructions here. You'll see why below.
Opened up the box! The girls wanted to touch everything.
I laid all the pieces out and tried to make sure everything was there. There is a list of all the pieces but no pictures, which made it hard to identify them.
Then we got started!
We started out by following the instructions, so far so good.
But as you can see, we ended up with "extras". That's wasn't right! So I went to the Galileoscope website for help. There I downloaded this PDF with pictures. Much better! Now to disassemble and try again.
Finished! Now we are just waiting for it to get dark outside!
