For our final meeting of our study of The Saturdays, we studied birds. We began by looking at pictures of birds and seeing how many we could identify.
This was an experiment on Newton's Laws of motion. They tried to see how fast they could run past the balloons.
All of this was tied into flight. Our instructor today was an older sibling taking over for a sick mama. And what a fabulous job she did. She talked with them about some of the principles of flight while building their own planes. They also discussed Bernoulli's principle.
They used paper and straws and were able to construct their own designs.
