While we were searching for materials for our stick men we found a selection of feathers.
Freya was classifying the feathers using her knowledge from our ‘Birds’ topic and our ‘Birds of Prey’ topic.
She predicted that one of the feathers was a flight feather and wanted to test this theory by dropping it and watching how it fell through the air compared to a down feather.
It was fascinating, the flight feather picked up the air currents as it fell and twirled and danced.
The down feather softly fell to Earth without catching the air currents.
A great child-initiated experiment which, through slow-mo video proved her hypothesis. Well done Freya.
