|Check Out Again?
|Beacons of Light, Lighthouses; Gibbons, Gail
|A bit of the explanations are beyond my 4yo, but I'm able to fill in the details he doesn't understand. Especially interesting is the inclusion of a nearby lighthouse
|Lighthouse; Living in a Great Lakes Lighthouse, 1910-1040; O'Hara, Megan
|Written from accounts of children who grew up at a lighthouse on Lake Superior in Minnesota; very, very nice
|Holland Harbor Lighthouse
|Michigan Great Lakes lighthouses; listing of those that are still active and ones open to the public
|Build a lighthouse
|Lots of possibilities. Use cardboard tube. Paint/color designs. Use construction paper for top.
|Find a flashlight with a bulb that sticks up when the lens is removed. In a dark room, turn on the flashlight (with the lens removed). Notice how well you can see; how bright the light is; how much of the room is lit. Place a mirror "behind" the light. Notice how much brighter the light is; how much of the room is lit.
|Lots of fun, much laughing
