As part of our maths and technology learning the class has been learning to design, make and modify parachutes. The next step will be to record the descent times on a table and compare these with other groups. Students need to think about how they will take accurate measurements and ensure that 'flights' are conducted in a fair manner. The photos show the creating stage. The designs were drawn using the Google drawing tool.
|Good use of recycled materials.|
|Some serious concentration at the create stage!|
