As I watched Nik Wallenda complete a tight ropewalk close to the Grand Canyon on Sunday, I began to wonder how in the world he could balance on the 2-inch thick cable for such a long time …

 

I know he has practiced for a long time in all kinds of conditions …

 

But even he said that it was hard to stay focused for that long!

 

Balance …

 

Balance is a tricky thing …

 

Some people have very good balance …

 

And some people, like me, don’t …

 

When I  searched on Wonderopolis about balance, I found past wonders about unicycles and paddle surfing

 

I even found one about ballet!

 

From Science Buddies, I found an activity called Circus Science: How to balance anything which focuses on physics, mass, and balance …

 

I also found lots of things when I searched Thinkfinity for balance

 

And all different kinds of balance …

 

Balancing Equations

Balancing Shapes

Balancing Three Branches at Once

Balancing Artists

Balance Points in Science

 

Do you have good balancing skills?
