On Tuesday 28th June, Class 5 spent the afternoon preparing for a science experiment on air resistance.
The children discussed air resistance, made scientific predictions, discussed the different variables and planned out how they were going to carry out the experiment. The children made three different parachutes all with different surface areas.
Tomorrow, the children are going to test their parachutes to see what happens!
Have a look at the photographs below of the children making their parachutes…
They used bin bags, string, scissors, rulers and paperclips to make the parachutes. The children changed the surface areas so that they can test whether the size of the surface area will slow down their parachute.
