Land Yachts

posted in: Sixth Class News | 0

Sixth Class investigated how objects may be moved by air, so we decided to make a Land Yacht.

In small groups, we explored which materials and fabrics we thought would best suit a land yacht, sails and wheels.  Next, we planned and discussed how to build the land yacht so it would hopefully travel at least 20cm in a straight line when placed in front of a hairdryer.  We also wanted it to have a working sail.  After all our planning and preparation, we built our yachts and put them to the test.  Check out some of our creations in the pictures below.
