Gliders


To better understand how lift works, we made 2 gliders out of cardboard, straws, clay and tape. The gliders were exactly alike except for the size of their wings.  RESULT:  The glider with the long narrow wing traveled faster than the glider with the short-wide wing.  Dad also made airplanes out of colored paper and we joined the fun.  Everywhere there were flying gliders and paper planes! Our house was literally a mess after the experiment ... and it was a lovely mess!

This is how Riel explained FLIGHT (grade2)

This was Aethan's interpretation
