Spring and kites

Spring and kites

We took advantage of the sunny spring days to continue working with kites.

After studying the characteristics of the right-angled triangles, we discovered that four right-angled triangles joined together gave life to another geometric figure: the rhombus.

We have also discovered that this shape is typical of kites and we indulged to build colored ones with our right-angled triangles, to decorate our classroom.

 

We also tried to build kites using garbage bags, toothpicks and string. We have thus obtained kites, not very beautiful (we admit it), but perfectly flying and with a minimum expense.

So much fun!

So much fun!

The kids sent an e-mail to a gentleman called Edo, who makes kites as a hobby.

He gave them a lot of information about the different types of kites.

Moreover he helped them to explore the materials suitable for kite making.

We decided to buy a handmade white kite from Edo and to personalize  it with the logo of the project and the flags of the four countries involved: so, now we have our ” Let’s fly high in Europe” kite.

The children love it and they  enjoy themselves  very much flynig it  up high in the blue  spring sky!

So much fun!

Through the kite topic and planned activities, this time the kids had the opportunities to develop their mathematical thinking and skills.

During the lessons, they studied the aerea of the rhombus and then they created beautful kites.

The kites werealso  used to decorate a little theatre where they performed a concert on February 25th for the parents after a music course.

Bravi!
