Balance Birds

Kindergarten’s lab focused on balance. We stood on one foot, then the other, and then on one foot with our eyes closed. We observed what we did with our arms when we began to lose our balance. One of my little physicists suggested that we stare at something to help us keep our balance. Then we tried to balance books on our head and we walked forward and backward on a balance beam. My scientists used a number balance (one of my favorite math tools) with a lab partner to balance equations.

At the end of lab, we took out our balance birds. The children were fascinated with this simple science tool. Just look at those faces. I have the best job ever!
