What do a piece of copier paper, a straight pin, a sharpened pencil with a meaty eraser at the end, scissors, tape, a ruler, a small plastic jar lid, and a gob of water colors markers (optional) have in common, you ask?
Together they make a pinwheel!
Y'all, this is another one of those Simple Saturday posts that I am almost ashamed to write because the activity is just so darned simple to make! For real.
That being said, this activity is a fantastic one to teach measurement skills with. And, if the pinwheel doesn't work...well, try, try again!
So join wacky Mr. John and me tomorrow, won't you?
We'll have a breezy, wheezy, cheezy good time together.
