Parachutes!

In Mr Ward's class on Wednesday the 7th December, we did a science about parachutes and a test about it. Firstly,  we got some materials: coloured tissues, red fabrics, bubble wrap and newspaper. We picked some materials, decorated it and then attach it to some string (the length was your own choice). Then we made an object to be the 'test person' for the parachutes. Most people used paper clips. Once everyone had done at least one, we did a test of the parachutes. Ocean and Ollie came 1st, Emma and Lani came 2nd and Aimee and Lucy came 3rd. We made more then one parachute in our pairs. Unfortunately, we ran out of time, so we didn't get to test the other parachutes. It was really fun that day making the parachutes!!
