This week the children have been learning about the fun ways there are to move around. We made parachutes out of plastic bags. The children cut the size of parachute they would like, thinking about how much air theiy need to catch in them. The attached string to four corners as only in one corner or the middle would not let it fly. They then tested their parachutes on little teddies from the bridge in the playground. Thankfully almost all the teddies made it safe to the ground...except one was stuck in a tree overnight!!
The children brought their parachutes home to test on their own toys.
