Fun with the Overhead Projector

A few days ago I put out another request on Facebook. I was in the market for an overhead projector, but I didn't want to spend a bunch of money. I though maybe some one I knew might have one in storage and would be willing to part with it. Well, not long after I posted my request, I received a reply from a friend who said she had one I could borrow for a couple of months. I was thrilled and made immediate plans to meet her and pick it up.

Here are some photos of the fun we have been having.

I would like to say a huge THANK YOU to my friend Susie! This is such a wonderful addition to our learning space. We are going to be very busy over the next couple of months finding new ways to explore with light!
