As part of our topic, “Famous For Five Minutes,” we have been looking at the inventions of Leonardo Da Vinci. Today we looked at his drawings of a parachute. We looked at photographs which showed how people had made Da Vinci’s parachute and it worked.
Then we split into groups of three and worked on our own designs drawing how we wanted them to look and labelling them with the materials we needed. Next we created our designs and best of all we tried them all out!
Most of them actually flew!!! It was brilliant fun!
