Today, in class, we made our very own kites. We designed them a few days ago and then we got to fly them. It was really fun. Mine was supposed to look like a soccer ball ripping out of the material. I'm not sure it really looked like that but I did the best I could. To make the kite you had to slip two long sticks through four holes by weaving. Then you had to tape them down. You had to again tape the string to the sides and do a knot three times. It was your choice to add a tail or not. I chose to add the tail and then you just fold it in half and tape it to the middle of the bottom of the kite, then ta-da!!!! You have a beautiful kite. Once all the classes had a turn building their kite, our whole class got to go out to are gigantic big field and fly our kites. Mine went tremendously high without me even trying! All in all I was so pleased we got the chance to make them. It was an astonishing day.
