Do you know the best time to fly a kite? Our 6th grade Earth Science class does. They studied a unit on weather and the causes of wind, learning about convection currents which are responsible for the winds that are common along the beach this time of year. Our capable 6th graders can explain how and why these winds form. This project culminated with a 7 block walk to the beach to put their knowledge into practice.
