Lockerbie Kick Wheel lockerbiewheels.com Teacher: Heather Bubnis, Mission Viejo High School, Mission Viejo, California Level: High School Review: The Lockerbie Wheel is a great wheel to use in the classroom. My high-school students found that it was easy to control the speed of the wheel when making thrown projects, and they especially liked that they were able to adjust the height of the seat. This wheel is very sturdy and should hold up well with a lot of use. The tray is made of metal rather than plastic so you do not have to worry about it breaking and having to replace the tray each year. Students also thought that it was easier to clean up after use because there were less removable pieces than other wheels. To use the kick wheel, students should make sure that they wear shoes with good traction so that their feet do not slip. Circle No. 350 on Reader's Service Card schoolartsonline.com 19
