The Greatest Show on EarthIndian Nations Council

November 1994

Harbors, Stations, Airports

Hurricane Lamp

Items needed:

Window screen

Fine wire

Baby food or small jar

Candle

Form a roll from a 6 1/2" x 10" piece of window screen. Fold edges over with pliers and lace together with fine wire. Paint a small jar for a base. Insert candle. Add the screen wire roll.

Periscope

Periscopes are good for spying. They let you peek over fences, around trees or look down at the sidewalk from a balcony.

Items needed:

Narrow box no longer than 3 feet (a shoe box)

Two metal mirrors from a sporting goods store

Masking tape.

Place one of the mirrors on the bottom of one side of the box. Trace around it. Do t he same on the top of the other side of the box.

The sketches on the right show how to fix the mirrors in place. You will probably have to adjust one of them to make the periscope work properly. You'll know it's working when you can see out of the top hole by looking through the bottom hole.

To finish up, put the lid on the box. Then seal the edges with masking tape and paint the box.

Rolling Nuts

Items needed:

Walnut shells

Marbles

Felt, scraps of paper

Glue

Watch these creatures skitter along on marbles. Their bodies are halves of walnut shells. You cut heads, tails and features from felt scraps or paper and glue them to the shells. After the glue dries, set the shells on marbles and let your creatures roll down a sloping board.
