This week, have the student create their own homemade kites. Then, on the next windy day, head outside to fly them!

Here are some great sites for lesson plans on how to construct the kites: 

“The Diamond Kite – Lesson Plan.” National Museum of the US Air Force 

“Building a Geometric Kite – Group Kite-Building Lesson.”  John Kozak

“Kite-Making Activity.” ScienceKids.com. 

“Basic Sled Kite.” University of Exeter. 

“Newspaper Kites.” PBS Kids.
