FLIGHT INQUIRY – Week of April 25th

SCIENCE – Flight Inquiry

All students recorded their Questions, Hypotheses, Materials, Observations, and Conclusions for their personal experiments in their Inquiry Journals.


Investigating Aerofoil wing shapes — some students completing their individual experiments —

Our running list of the Properties of Air:



We know that air naturally moves from an area of HIGH PRESSURE to an area of LOW PRESSURE



This movement of HIGH PRESSURE air under a wing will create LIFT under an aerofoil wing.



This week, we have discussed how the FOUR FORCES OF FLIGHT  work togethe so that an airplane can take off, level off/fly and land.
