Eason Students Study Balance and Motion

Students experiment with their “twirlers” in Mrs. Eighmy’s Science class at Eason Elementary. From left to right it are Ben Finch, Lauren Tetzlaff, Brynn Herren, and Jack Hillis.

In Rebecca Eighmy’s second grade classroom, the students are studying balance and motion in their Science class. They learned about spinners and where they occur in nature and also in man-made machines. They used different kinds of materials and made “twirlers,’ and were able to experiment with them by watching them twirl. They learned that the twirlers move when air pushes against the extended ‘wings.’
