Flight – Introduction to Air as a Fluid – Flying and Swimming

Students had some conversation about how air is a fluid similar to water.  We discussed common characteristics of animals that fly and swim as well as characteristics of plants and seeds that travel on the wind.  Check out the mindmaps below to see how some of our conversation went.   We also discussed how air takes up space and has mass (density).  See the picture below of the experiment we did (trick of how to immerse paper towel in water without getting it wet).
