Objective Students will use properties and theorems of parallelograms and/or triangles, to construct and fly a kite. This project can be used as a six-weeks projects or as a stand-alone lesson. The students can work in class one day a week or every day for a week culminating in actually flying the kite. It is the perfect springtime activity and enables students to apply what they've learned about parallelograms and triangles. This activity allows for crossover activity with science as well. Students can use their own creativity as well as math and science concepts and even have competitions between classes or individuals. Students can work individually or as a team. Great way to take your classroom outdoors!
