What Can the Power of Wind Do?
This project was split into two parts; the first was exploring the power of the wind and the second was designing and making a kite. Children spent the first half term investigating who might use the wind and they made a range of products such as wind chimes and sails. For the second part, children investigated material, shape and size of kites to design, make, critique and redraft their own kite to fly in the park.
