Intro lesson: Theory of relativity and apocrypha. We talk about the nature of space and time. If you move in space you are also moving in time and the bicycle is a great way to experience the relative nature of movement. But did Einstein really think of his theory while riding his bike? This may be apocryphal. We talked about not taking other people’s word for things but finding out for yourself through experience and research. With that in mind, we delved into our trip topic.Topic: Local News (in the past)
We looked up old newspaper items on the Old Fulton website to learn more about what happened in the houses we live in before we lived there. And then went to visit each other’s homes.
