Engineer My Very Own Car

Think and talk about the following while engineering your very own car with your child…

We love to travel! We want to get to our destination in the best and fastest way possible. Using Newtons Law of Motion, lets build our very own car and measure the distance it travels! As you engineer your very own car think about travelling and how as much as we travel in body, we travel in heart. The Quran is a sure way to succeed in travelling to Allah. It guides and guides. The instructions below will help you in engineering your car. Lets put in the effort to make our hearts travel too seeking and adopting the guidance we are given.
