We have been reading the ‘Old Bear’ story. In the story the toys rescue Old bear from the attic using parachutes. We decided to make our own parachutes out of different materials and see which one floated the best from our attic, just like in the story.
We made half the parachutes in plastic and half in paper. We then made predictions about which one we thought may take longer to travel to the ground. We kept everything else about the experiment the same to make it a fair test.
Which parachute do you think was the best? Paper or plastic? Ask someone in Class 1!
