First graders used pencils, marker tops, old markers, wooden skewers, and crayons as axles...
And cardboard circles, take-out drink lids, used DVDs, and other round objects as wheels.
|Looks like DVDs made the best tops.|
|It works! Students counted in a fair scientific way: Using One Mississippi to time their counting. (Some kids used..1 Mississippi Sip. What is the origin of that?)|
|Paper captures path of top if the axle is a writing tool.|
|After finishing a cardboard wheel and pencil top, this first grader is selecting new pieces to try out.|
