This week we have been learning about forces and air resistance. We enjoyed learning about the effects of air resistance through exploring parachutes. We have planned our own investigations and made parachutes ready for our 'egg-citing' parachute launch.
The children have been set the challenge to find out which parachute is the most effective. They decided that a parachute is most effective if it has more air resistance acting upon it and have made parachutes for their own eggs to see if it will survive being dropped without cracking. Whose egg will survive?
