Experiment with air resistance by making parachutes!
You will need string, a straw, a sandwich bag and/or coffee filter, and a toy figure.
- Pull one of the strings through the straw. Cut off the zipper portion of the bag.
- Reach into the bag and pull both bottom corners in so they’re inside the bag.
- Tie an end of the string to each bottom corner of the bag.
- Pull the next string through the straw. Tie the ends to the knight.
