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.
Equipment and materials needed to complete guide activities include the Pitsco KaZoon Kites, 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.
