Sail or Fail

This month 6th Class engaged in a STEM investigation. We began by discussing how frisbees work. We then gathered items from our homes to investigate which one ‘sailed’ the furthest through the air. We were mindful of shape, size and weight when doing this investigation. To ensure fair testing, one person was responsible for throwing the items, from the same point, with the same force.

We then decided to make our own frisbees using materials from home and again we had to be mindful of size, shape, type of material and weight. We drew our designs, made our frisbees, tested how far they ‘sailed’ and recorded our data using charts and trend graphs.
