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 NGSS and Common Core standards addressed; teacher and student instructions for a variety of math, science, and technology activities; pretests and posttests; and resource pages. Contains separate activities for middle school and high school students as well as links to career information and applications of the 4Cs (communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity).

Equipment and materials needed to complete guide activities include the KaZoon Kites, as well as other tools and materials. Items needed for all activities are listed in the teacher guide.

“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.”
