Kite Making - December 2019

  • Sixth graders in Mrs. Wright's class researched, discussed and then created kites using ancient techniques recently. The students are reading a book called Dragonwings by Lawrence Yep to support ancient cultures studies in social science. After their research, they constructed kites from bamboo skewers, tissue paper, construction paper, yarn and string. It was interesting to watch the students create their own kites and then attempt to fly them!
