• Build your own Sled kite 11 June 2017 | View comments

  • Building and flying kites is a wonderful hobby and a good way to learn about air, wind and flight.  This type of kite is called a sled kite, it is constructed from a single sheet of light plastic, tape and straws.  It is a reliable flier, performing well in most wind conditions.

    This project supports many aspects of  state or provincial curriculum.  Schools have used this simple kite to support science and technology teaching in grades ranging from Kindergarten to Grade 6.  For grades 6, 7 and 8 this kite can be used as the basis for a design challenge, see "Experimenting with Kites" at the bottom.
