In the Classroom: Kindergarten Kite Day

Anne Phillips took kite flying to another level.  She spent the day with kindergarten students at Burnsville Elementary School making the connection between a fun day flying kites and the science behind the materials and the weather that make a kite fly.  Students were instructed on a simple folding technique to create their own kite using paper, a bamboo skewer, and ribbon for a tail.  Before making the kite the students learned how and why a kite flies.  Anne also discussed what would make a kite fly better or worse.  Students used crayons and feathers to craft their own designs.  And then….LIFT OFF!
