Wind-up World


  • What do you think this is?
  • Why is there a ‘world’ inside the box?
  • What happens when the handle is turned? What happens when it isn’t?
  • Why is there a hand on the handle?
  • What are the numbers?
  • Is there a meaning behind this picture? What do you think it is?
  • Design your own wind-up world.
  • Science link (forces): Could you make something move by turning a handle? Would you use a lever, cog or pulley?
  • Science link (Earth and Space): What keeps our world turning?

    Gran passed away last week. The house is sold so we are clearing it out. Mum said for me to do the loft; boringness. I was searching through a box when I found an jewelry case. I opened it and a city popped out. Suddenly, I was sucked inside.
