Have your adult helper saw each piece of wood at the mark you made. ” 10. Use each stick to measure several things in your house, such as a table, a door, or the size of the floor in your room. ” More Fun Stuff to Do For longer measurements, make a “pace” measuring stick. Measure the length of your pace, the distance you travel in one step, on a longer piece of wood. Have an adult helper cut the piece of wood at the mark, then use it to measure the length of several different objects. Explanation You should be able to easily measure different objects using either your “foot” or “cubit” measuring stick.

After the fall of the Roman Empire in 467, there was a decline in bathing and the use of soap in Europe until the 17th century. PROJECT 2 Free Wheeling t is generally recognized that the wheel was first IWheels introduced by the Sumerians around 3200 . . were actually already in use for making BCE pottery (potters shape clay on a wheel that can be easily turned), but it was the Sumerians who first used wheels on vehicles. Sumerian carts had heavy, solid wooden wheels made from two or three planks fastened together and cut into a disc.

A wheel will roll and move an object more easily than just dragging the object because it creates less friction, the force that opposes motion. Few inventions have been more important, or have more obscure origins, than the wheel. One theory is that early humans first discovered that a large, heavy object could be moved more easily if it was rolled on round logs rather than slid along the ground. Someone then figured out that a round piece of log (the wheel) could be rotated on a smaller stick (the axle).
