Parachute

Parachute

Today we made Parachutes in class. 

How to make a parachute with a plastic bag and
 a straw. 

Equipment: 
  • Plastic bag  
  •   Straw 

First you cut a straw into 8 equal parts lengthwise, only cut to the bend in the straw.
Then you sellotape the end.
Next grab a plastic bag, cut off the handles and the bottom. 
After that cut a square shape, the square sides should be all equal. 
Then fold the square in half,then in a quarter,then an eight,and then a sixteenth.
Next cut of the excess plastic. 
Open the shape and you will get a circle,then lay out the circle and sellotape the straw with eight equal parts down on the circle, like this. 


If you want you can put something in the top of the straw to weigh it down a bit. 
This is what it should look like at the end.

What causes air to move?, it is wind!

Experiment,  Air Exists

Equipment: Container filled with H2O, a jar, and a paper towel.

Predict: Will the paper stay dry?

Why? Because of the air in the jar.

Observe: Cam pushed the jar with the paper in it, into the water,we waited then we pulled the jar up and had a look, it was dry.

Explain: We put the paper into the jar and then into the water and the paper did not get wet at all, because of the air trapped in there.
