We are all different but there's something fantastic about that, isn't there?

We had to plan a science investigation to test which parachute would be best to save the Iron man. We investigated whether the size, shape, weight, material and whether the material had holes in would affect how quickly the Iron man fell. We have to make sure that we planned and conducted a fair test.

    Phew! Well done Foxes, we saved the Iron Man. Which parachute was the most effective? Why?

    The tin foil parachute was the best because it was thick so no air could get through it.

    It was the best when it was circular-shaped as well.

    With no holes it is safe.

    The tin foil was the best because it would have not a lot of air.

    I found out that tin foil was the best. A big parachute held more air resistance so it was the best.

    I learned that owls ate birds.

    It was tin foil because it was thick and no air can get through.

    The tin foil one was the best because it was nice and thick.

    I think it was fabric because it is big.

    Tin foil, light, circular-shaped, no holes and the big parachutes are the best. This is because tin foil is sturdy, the light one is easier to lift, the circle one is like all the other obvious parachutes, no holes makes less air resistance and the big ones have more surface area.

    The circle parachute was the best.

    That the best one is the circle because the rest fell in 1 second and the circle Fell 2 seconds.

    The tin foil was the slowest. The tissue paper was the fastest.

    The dinosaur attached to a fire truck.

    I think the medium hole one is the best because it was nice and slow so the Iron man wouldn’t fall again.

    The circle parachute was the best.

    World book day was the best.
