Kite Kraze

This week we have been making and TRYING to fly kites.  There hasn't been much wind so a lot of our kites are waiting for wind until they can fly!

This morning on our Google Meet we shared our kites and how we made them and I took some screen shots of them to show you.  If you want to see more from everyone's kites, head over to individual blogs and find the post on kites.  There are some fabulous designs there!

We learnt that there are 4 forces acting on kites.  Lift, Thrust, Drag and Weight/Gravity.  The balance of the kite is also important - where you tie your string.

We all had fun this week getting outside and designing kites!

Here is our sharing session!

  1. These kites are so cool! Everyone has done an amazing job.
    I have had a quick look at everyones kite blog posts and I can see that they are all doing some amazing learning around flight.
    I look forward to see what they learn about next week!
