The Paper Bag Kites activity guides learners to create kites from paper bags. Kites are filled with air while learners run. The air creates lift that allows the bags to fly higher than if they were not inflated.

Paper Bag Kites: What makes a kite fly?

Objective: Understand that objects fly only when lift is greater than the force of gravity.

Scenario and Task: Today you are going to be a systems engineer. You will design an opening for a paper bag kite so the kite will fly above your waist.

AeroEducate K-2 Activities are developed for younger learners to investigate aerodynamics topics such as drag, lift, or Bernoulli’s Principle. Designed in a 5-E lesson format, each activity begins with an essential question, incorporates a career component through a real-world scenario, and introduces age-appropriate vocabulary. Background information for the facilitator is included. Posters that illustrate key concepts associated with the lesson can be printed or viewed electronically. Templates are included as needed.

Full access to the activity and supporting resources is provided once free registration to the AeroEducate website is completed.
