9.27.2021: Google very recently changed drive links for security reasons, so you may find that when you click on a link for one of my printables that you need to submit a share request. PLEASE only submit one share request per item! These have to be manually confirmed and I will get to them when I get to them. I promise you that sending me 12 requests in rapid succession will not make that happen faster, lol! I do not sit on my computer waiting around to send people instant shares of freebies. Thank you so much for your patience as I try to sort out this latest Google mess.

The Answer to Yesterday's Puzzle

Did you figure it out?

I'll give you a hint:

It's the lock to one of our pocket doors.

The bolt (bottom left) was frozen.
Some crusty residue I scraped off unfroze it,
but it wouldn't stay in a locked position.
Can you see which piece is in the wrong place?

It's that silver piece with the hole in it that should be over a pivot point (fulcrum).

The kiddos spotted the problem right away.
We had fun taking apart the lock and actually seeing how all the parts work.

What do you have in your house that you can take a part
and turn into a science lesson?
