Designing a Scale

School Groups
Middle School

Have you ever been on a seesaw at a playground? How does a seesaw balance? After an online guided tour of the Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation’s Collection of Anatolian Weights and Measures, we will talk about what balance is and study different types of scales and weighing machines. We will then go on to design our own scale using various materials, such as paper cups, hangers and threads.

Materials
Paper cups (2 pieces)
Clothes hanger (1 piece)
Various materials for weighing (things that can fit into paper cups, such as small toys or lentils, chickpeas or rice)
Thread (yarn, straw ropes, ribbons, etc.)

Postcard Nudes

Postcard Nudes

The various states of viewing nudity entered the Ottoman world on postcards before paintings. These postcards appeared in the 1890s, and became widespread in the 1910s, following the proclamation of the Second Constitutional Monarchy, traveling from hand to hand, city to city.
