You don’t have to play with lightning to learn from kites! This guide shows how to construct a tetrahedron kite and use it to demonstrate many important principles: lift, area and volume, density, forming and testing a hypothesis, tetrahedral and polyhedral design, and more.

The KaZoon Kites Teacher’s Guide contains NCTM, NSTA, and ITEEA standards addressed; teacher and student instructions for a variety of math, science, and technology activities; pretests and posttests; resource pages; and puzzles. Contains separate activities for middle school and high school students.

Equipment and materials needed to complete guide activities include the Pitsco KaZoon Kites – Getting Started Package, scissors, three spring scales, tape measure or ruler, altimeter, wind gauge, stopwatch, scale, and standard classroom tools and materials. Note: This list is for all activities; individual activities don’t require all listed materials.

“The KaZoon Kite isn’t your ordinary, run-of-the mill kite. No, indeed. It’s a tetrahedron. . . . I guarantee this is one of the most interesting kites you’ll ever see. . . . After seeing the unique shape and style of the kite, I was looking forward to trying it out. . . . All in all, this would be a fun family project, and if your kids enjoy hands-on activities, I can’t see going wrong with this one. Check it out.”
