Kites, an ASE SYCD: Science Year Primary resource, explores the variety of kite designs around the world, together with the scientific principles that keep kites aloft.
It provides a fun way of exploring some types of forces. There is a strong multi-cultural element through looking at kites around the world. There are also strong links to the design and technology curriculum. The unit provides another context for the development of pupils' literacy skills.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
