In Science we investigated the effect of air resistance and created parachutes for eggs. We had to create a parachute and a cradle to keep our egg safe. 


We created our parachutes from a choice of materials and dropped them from a small height onto the playground. 



Only one egg survived!!


So, we discussed what it was about the parachute that worked and tried to create a class parachute. We created a bigger parachute to drop from a larger height.


We tried to apply our knew knowledge of air resistance to create a parachute that would save our egg!
