3rd class pupils worked in teams to make a parachute to land a LEGO person safely!
3rd class were talking about the force of gravity and were asked to explore how some moving objects may be moved be slowed down. They also investigated falling objects and compared the difference between weight of object and how fast it fell. They were then asked to design a parachute and to test which material would make the best parachute to land a LEGO person. The pupils worked in groups and were each given a different material of the same size to keep the test fair.
