Today we discussed gender stereotypes with Fort Alice. We discussed how boys and girls can do anything they want to do. We held a courtroom discussion about whether boys are stronger than girls.
We made 5 parachutes, each with a different surface area, then timed how long they each took to fall to the ground. What did you find out 5B?
Today we investigated area of parachutes, we had to create parachutes of a given area. We are going to test which area of parachute stays in the air the longest. We will update you on our results when we have finished testing them.
