This week, Year 5 have been learning all about air resistance in our unit Let’s Get Moving. They learnt that air resistance is a type of friction between air and another material.
We asked the question, will changing the size of the paper helicopter affect the descent time of the falling object?
They found out that it did and those objects with a larger surface area in relation to their mass would fall at a slower rate! They really enjoyed taking part in this lesson. Great work Year 5!
