Catching The Breeze- How Gliders Fly

We have been learning all about how people can use ideas from nature to make new things. We studied how seeds travel, by gliding, spinning or twirling away from the tree or plant.  Using this knowledge, we spent time designing our own gliders with the idea of how seeds travel.  We created many adaptations to them help the gliders improve their flight.  Today we wrapped up our unit by building foam gliders and taking them for test flights!  We tried some with propellers and some without.  We also tested if the wind changed their flight pattern.
