I’ve been rather tardy about updating the newsletter on my site because the weather has been so glorious. Between kite flying and working in my garden, I just haven’t had the time to write.
Kites…on a Roll® News
We found a website that might really interest you. Visit the link below to find an interactive mapping of great places to fly kites across America. http://find.mapmuse.com/re1/interest.php?brandID=KITE_SITES. The site is created so that you may also add your favorite kite flying site if it is not already listed.
Some web sites that might give you a better understanding about why and how a kite flies are: http://www.2020site.org. Scroll down to the “How To” section and Click on “How to Fly a Kite”. Once there, click on “The Science of Kite Flying”. And the K-8 Aeronautic Internet Textbook page http://wings.avkids.com/Curriculums/Vehicles/kite_summary.html. If you type this in, pay close attention to capital letters. There is also an _ between kite and summary. Scroll down to “Teacher Text”.
If you’re planning a kite festival or kite fly this year, you may wish to contact the American Kitefliers Association for help. Not only will they give you wonderful support and suggestions, but they might know some people in your area who could help or fly some very special kites at your event. The association can be reached at www.aka.kite.org.
Hints for an Easier Activity
We recently added a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page to our site. We will continually update it as we are asked additional questions that might relate to a number of you. We want to make our kite making as easy as possible for you and your group.
