This is a project that requires students to research, set up an experiment, design and build a kite, and then write a paper to summarize the experience. It was designed in a math classroom and most years all portions of this project were completed in math class. This year we had help from our Social Studies teachers and Science teachers to work through the project. The math focuses on measurement and proportions. It is a great end of year project. We do this after we have completed state testing because we find that we still have over a month of school left and the students seem to think the year is over because testing is done.
