And ALL of the students have spent some time with a book from a genre that’s outside of their typical reading comfort zone.I did this several weeks ago with my 8th graders, and this week the 6th graders are having their turn.See Chinese Military in modern times enjoying monowheels (presumably for balance training, but maybe simply... ) -Monowheel is popular for travel between remote Russian villages: Some outlandish mono-wheel concepts from 1925 "Science & Invention" and "The Electrical Experimenter" in 1918: Wacky time of Victorian experimentation Back in the 1860s, bicycle design was by no means uniform.
I feel like middle school is one of those key times in life where many students either take the path to become a life-long reader…or not.I especially like that I can customize the boxes for the classes/grades that I have visiting.And I LOVE that lots of book replenishing is needed after each class! What other tried and true activities do you use for the love of reading?Here’s how I’ve put together this activity: I always get great feedback from teachers and students with this activity…they love it!By the final round, about half of the students will typically have a book that they want to check out.A second, slightly better design for motorized monowheel appeared in France made by Erich Edison-Puton in 1910 and powered by a 150 cc single-cylinder De Dion engine of 3.5 hp.Here the driver sits inside the wheel more like the position on a normal motorcycle.And, once again, it’s the drivetrain and suspension that are recipients of the trickery this time around. And special it will need to be to fend off the vast list of competitors including the Volkswagen Golf R, BMW M2, Mercedes-AMG A45, Audi TT RS and the soon to arrive facelift Audi RS3.The theme is this: the RS Focus has never shied from trying something new in order to get tyre-monstering power, for a car of its size, to the road. But unlike rival systems, it’s not just front-led, pushing power rearwards when you need it. There was also one idea of a horse-drawn monowheel: But who was first?Patent research shows there was some pretty fierce rivalry going on.
