We had great fun learning about the centre of gravity in objects. The pupils of first and second class had to design clowns and cut them out of thick card, but had to be able to balance them on one finger from their clowns noses! Luckily, the scientists of first and second class were on the case!
They discovered that by adding extra weights to the arms using marla, they could eventually balance out the shapes of the clowns. Problem solved! They thoroughly enjoyed engaging with this experiment!
