Whirlybird Paper Helicopters

This term, 2KM and 2KJ are exploring some science.

Today we learnt about flight and made whirlybird paper helicopters. We experimented with heights, lengths and weights to see how this affected how the helicopter flew.

Here is a video of Alana, Amelie, Liam, Andrew, Harry, Anthony and Paris flying their helicopters!
