> My Art I kids tackled the 1000 peace crane origami project in '96 and they are
> still all over the school. We used monofilament fishing line, wooden scewers,
> and paper clips to construct multileveled mobiles. One scewer was connected
> from the middle 4" from the grid for the suspended ceiling. Several birds were
> tied to it with the clear line and at each end another scewer with birds was
> connected. Then those two each had two more scewers attached, etc. Most of
> these have approximately 45 birds. The assistant principal who handles building
> matters discovered that they were a good indicator of how effective the air flow
> was from the ac/heat vent, so he requested that we place them about 3 feet from
> the ceiling vents. They've been in place 3 1/2 years now and still look good.
> The fire marshall checks our building regularly and he hasn't said anything.
