Year 3 Science Day

13th February 2020

Year 3 looked at air resistance throughout the day. We first tested how things travel through the air by throwing paper aeroplanes and balls to see which would fall slower. We then thought about parachutes and how they can use air resistance to help us. We investigated if the size of the parachute would effect the amount of air resistance it would face. We built parachutes for our egg astronauts and then dropped them off the balcony, timing how long it took to reach the floor. We had a great day discussing forces, creating parachutes and trying to protect the eggs from smashing.
