Taking Flight in Science
This afternoon (Monday 18th September) the Woodpeckers have been looking at the force of air resistance and flying helicopters in the classroom. After making the rotor blades and investigating the impact of both gravity and air resistance, as well as how the blades rotate, we then had to chose an element to change and investigate.
We could look at the impact of having blades of different sizes, the weight on the end of the blades and changing the size and length of the blades themselves.
We had great fun testing out our theories and seeing the affects of the changes. We'll now be able to report back our findings to each other and decide where we want to take our science learning next.
