Parachutes

Each group plans how to redesign the activity to meet more of the criteria.

Then they try out their plans.

 

This group decided to test the variable of how different materials would effect how well a parachute floats. They made one out of crepe paper.

 

Then they dropped them both parachutes from a balconey to compare them.

 

Groups go back and forth between planning

and testing their plans
