Day 17 / 105 - Kepler's Three Laws

Two weeks ago my son's assignment for Science was to explain (in layman's terms) Johannes Kepler's Three Laws of Planetary Motion to his Challenge B class.  Naturally, our first step was to gain an understanding of these astronomical laws ourselves.

I'm pretty convinced that homeschooling higher level Science is more than possible today because of the Internet.  We watched a few Physics videos that explained the astronomy and the mathematics behind the laws.  We read a few articles about Kepler.  For his project, my son opted to illustrate each law because it was easier for him to explain each law from a picture.

Learning right alongside him, I am simply loving his Challenge B Science strand this fall.
