Posted:Im also thinking of bringing my twirling into my university work,my idea of what i want to do is a performance piece in a very dark room with a couple of lab bunson burners and a load of chemicals, and after the people file in i will start a chemistry lecture talking about how different chemicals produce different colours when they burn meanwhile i will light up my Poi and start to twirl then using other colour flames as my lecture goes on, i just wish i was taught that way.------------------"smoking makes you look cool" His Majestys personal Elvis

Posted:I'm planning to bring my twirling to school, too... but in a different context.I am currently a Master's student in Elementary Education at the University of Pennsylvania. I student teach a kindergarten class in a public school in West Philadelphia. In a few weeks, I will be teaching a unit I designed on making movies. The science component of my unit will be on the princliple of "persistence of vision," which is the principle that our retinas hold an image for a fraction of a second. That is why we see a series of still images flicked before our eyes as a moving picture, and why we see twirling fire/beaming/glow Poi as circles of light.On the day that we begin our science unit, I will turn off the lights in the classroom and twirl glowsticks for my students. Then we will discuss why they saw the glowing circles.Just thought I'd share... Non-Https Image Link
Posted:Hey twirlgirl, are you sure it's a kindergarden class you're student teaching for? I would have loved to have that as a lesson when I was in kindergarden Non-Https Image Link (all we really got were politeness classes, right and wrong, math and I learned my ABC's there Non-Https Image Link )Kinudin
