This balancing bird demonstrates the science of gravity and weight distribution in a way that captivates.
The bird’s centre of gravity — also called the centre of mass — is located at the tip of its beak. This is the point at which the mass of the body is perfectly balanced. Just as you can hold a pencil using one finger if you find its centre of gravity, so the balancing bird will balance on its beak on whatever object it is placed upon!
Use the balancing bird to teach children about weight distribution and gravity, or as a “get-out-of-jail-free” card for maintaining a calm and positive dynamic within the classroom. If your child is moving away from self-control toward misbehaviour, invite them to place the balancing bird on a fingertip and watch how their demeanour changes.
The balancing bird offers an engaging way to teach the scientific concepts of gravity, weight distribution and balance.
