World's first windmill
Genius Hour Period 5
Why did they make the windmill?
What purpose did the windmill serve?
- It ground grain.
2. It pumped water.
This was very important because women no longer had to collect the water out of a well manually, they had the windmill pump the water for them and then they collected it and took it back to their village, only a short walk away.
3. Helped regulate temperatures
The Persians were really smart, they were actually some of the first people to come up with the idea of fans. The Persians used the windmill as another resource other than power. The wind would go off the windmill and double as a cooling system, the windmill also worked as a fan.
