Students LOVE to build parachutes! In this activity students will build a parachute out of grocery bags. You can provide materials or let them bring in their own. After testing them out students have to calculate the speed and acceleration of their parachute. This activity is a fun way to end your acceleration unit and also tie in the concept of free fall.
