You will need:
2 index cards, ice cream (craft) stick, flexible straw, tape
What to do:
Cut out a man and a shark from two index cards. Tape the short end of
a flexible straw to the man’s ankles, and the other end of the straw to the
mouth of the shark. Bend the straw at a 30 to 45 degree angle, so the shark
is directly below the man. Place the man’s feet on the end of a craft stick
plank. Hold the other end of the stick in your hand. The man will not fall
over, but will instead tip back and forth as he peers nervously over the edge
of the board, watching the shark!
How it works:
The man balances on the end of the board without falling off because the
shark keeps the center of gravity below the man’s feet. The man stays on
the board (unless someone pushes him off, or he collapses and dies of
fright) because he tends to keep as low a center of gravity as possible.
More science fun:
If the man is too heavy he will fall off the board. Try different sizes and weights of man and shark to see what weight
of each is required for him to stay on the board!
