5th and 6th class have made balancing clowns. I know what you are thinking what is balancing clowns? Well they are basically a clown that has got 2 penny’s on its feet to keep the weight even. IMG_0560

 

We made clowns out of card. We had to colour them. Then we had to neatly cut them out . We also had to get two of the same coins and stick them onto the hands of the clown. Then we tried to balance the clown by the nose on our finger. We also tried balancing it on the edge of a ruler and scissors. We even tried balancing it on our nose. The way it works is that gravity is pulling it down and the lower towards the ground you put it, the easier it is to balance because the gravity is pulling it down. We enjoyed doing this experiment very  much.
