Explanation of What We Made.
This week all the Junior Classes made pinwheels. We made the pinwheels because we are learning about how things move. We are especially finding out about how toys move.
We made the pinwheels in our Literacy Groups and parents helped us make them. We read and followed the instructions to make the pinwheels.
We needed a square piece of paper, a pencil with an eraser on the top and a pin. We folded and cut the paper and stapled the ends of the paper together. We bent the pin and put it through the paper and into the eraser.
Explanation of How it Works.
Explanation of Why it Works
When you blow into the pinwheel the blades move because the air is pushing the blades. The air goes into the pockets on the blades and the heavier or the stronger the air the bigger the push.
The pin allows the blade to spin because its smooth and does not create friction.
