Michael had to do a biography project for school. He had to do a book report and an oral report--with a PUPPET. Yep. A puppet of the person. Since he is interested in being a scientist, he picked Albert Einstein.
And this weekend, we made not one, but TWO sock puppets of Albert Einstein.
We used an old pair of dad's socks, and these materials:
One of the things they were graded on was if the puppet looked like the famous person. We lucked out, because Einstein is basically the hair and the mustache.
The reason for two Einsteins, to explain his theory of relativity which tells us that the faster you travel through space, the slower you travel through time.
(His twin paradox says: "Consider a pair of brothers, identical twins. One gets a job as an astronaut and rockets into deep space. The other stays on Earth. When the traveling twin returns home, he discovers he's younger than his brother.")
So, the two puppets helped to represent this theory during the oral report. These are the puppets drying.
I was going to take pictures today of Michael with the puppets, but he had to hand them in. Grade on the whole project: 96%
Good job, Michael!
