Put your plywood sheet on a work surface and draw the rooster’s silhouette on it with a pencil. At its bottom’s, drill another 2-inch deep, ¼ hole to accommodate a dowel that usually sticks to the ground when displaying your whirligig.
Ensure that its 1/16-inch hole is perfectly aligned with the dowel’s end center. Then, angle dowels on opposite sides one vertically and the other horizontally to create enough surface for the wind to catch while allowing your whirligig to spin.
Inside the dowel into the ground, align holes in your whirligig’s bottom such over it and slide it into place.

Only because my son is on homework restrictions due to a concussion am I aware that the book was assigned. I am not one to coddle my kids but seriously you can't have young adolescents reading a book about so many people with suicidal thoughts with a message that Hey if you kill someone else instead, you get out of jail and get to go on an adventure on your own through the country.
Good book not sure if its totally appropriate this book was pretty good but there was talk of sexual harassment and also a kid is underage drinking and tries to kill himself. Of all the short contemporary novels I've come across in tutoring bright teens, this is one of the best.
Kids will READ the book--both boys and girls. It has an unusual plot that works, and there is great wisdom in the book plus many interesting characters.
Then the trip he goes on as retribution towards the girls parents is inspirational and makes me want to go out to explore the world. The chapters were a bit confusing jumping from a different person then back to the main chapter.
The book didn't talk about the person who died that mush to feel like that Brent did something bad. The charters in the book weren't in sting tall they didn't want you to know more about them and when you start reading it you wonder about other things that they talked only for a second then jump to something else that they never talked about and then jump to something else.
Science teachers must take complicated scientific theories and experiments and make them accessible to children of all ages, a task that is not always easy. One way that teachers get students to connect to material is through the hands-on approach, allowing them to interact with science in a tangible way.
A common project for studying meteorology involves building whirligigs and weather vanes, which measure wind direction and speed. The distance between the lines will vary depending on the size of soda bottle you have.
Bend the flaps of the cut bottle backwards, so that they stretch outwards like fan blades. Thread the straightened hanger through the holes in the bottles so that it protrudes through the blades and out the back.
For a school activity, students can take whirligigs outside to take note of wind direction and changes in speed. Cut a vertical slit, 1/2 inch deep, into each end of a 12-inch piece of wood.
Measure to the center point of the wood and hammer a nail straight through it, from top to bottom. Hold a broomstick or long wooden dowel rod vertically in front of you.
Support the rod against the ground and place a small, circular washer on the end. Mount the vane on a fence, roof or other area using metal wire to record the direction of the wind.
