How to make:

  • Make a hole to your plastic bottle or paper cup.
  • Put the barbecue stick or pencil into the hole.
  • Make two holes on the side of your plastic bottle and another two holes below it to make a cross/Stick your illustration board strips to the pencil to make a cross.
  • If you’re using plastic bottle insert the barbecue stick into the holes to make a cross and stick the cups into its tips just like i did/ Glue the cups below the very edge of the illustration board strips.
  • If you’re using plastic bottle its done but if you’re using cups glue 2 cups upside down to make a base and put illustration board under it just to make it stronger.

How does an anemometer works?

Anemometer will spin around to the direction the wind is blowing and every second is a miles/h or miles for hour.
