This week we got put into groups to make things that will either fly or glide. My group were making paper parachutes. Mine didn't really work. I think that it might be because of the way that I glued the paper together. I think that I glued it a bit too close together. Also I think it might have been because of the paper that I used, because I used thick card. I think that the forces that were acting on my parachute was a lot of weight. I could tell because as soon as I let the parachute go it just fell to the ground, instead of floating to the ground.
I wonder that if I used normal lighter paper, if it would float more than just fall. Also I think that if we used a plastic bag instead of paper, that it would also float more. Maybe it fell straight to the ground because there wasn't that much wind outside.
I think I would put myself on relational for my observations, and also for my inferences. I put myself here because I can make observations and inferences, and I am pretty sure that I know how, why and when to do it so that my observations and inferences are accurate.
