Sophie, a New School Montessori kindergartner, learned a lot about physics, determination and pride in her work as she juiced an orange. In just 3 minutes and 17 seconds, you can observe (in the video below) as Sophie discovers on her own that:
- It is easier to apply pressure when standing directly over the orange rather than sitting.
- Twisting works better than just pressure alone.
- You get more juice if you reposition the orange half every so often.
- Placing one hand on top of the other allows for more concentrated compression on the orange.
All-in-all, Sophie taught herself a lot of important principles in just 3 minutes and 17 seconds. Sophie’s smile and pride in her work at the end is worth the wait!
