Build the cheapest and simplest kite in the world and soar into science with aerodynamic lessons you and your students will enjoy!
What do you do with your science students on the last day before spring break, summer vacation, or senior graduation? You know, the days where instruction seems out of the question. Try teaching with kites! Kites are fun and keep students engaged on those crazy school days. Who doesn’t want to make a kite and learn along the way? “SOAR Into Science With Kites” uses kites to teach forces, measurement, vectors, the metric system, dimensional analysis, and other science concepts. Lessons plans, handouts, worksheets, slide pages, assessments, directions for making classroom kites, and suggestions for additional kite projects are included in this unit.
