Description

The Pitsco 38324 KaZoon Kite Kit with Teacher’s Guide includes the Pitsco 56772 KaZoon Kite Kit and the Pitsco 59461 KaZoon Kites Teacher’s Guide by Robert Stokes (ISBN: 1-58651-914-X), which provides instructions, lesson plans, worksheets, tests, puzzles, and resource pages for teaching science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) activities based on the Pitsco KaZoon Kite Kit. The Kite Kit makes two kites and provides students in grades 3-12 a hands-on activity to build a four-cell tetrahedral kite that demonstrates the scientific concepts of aerodynamics, lift, equilibrium, and Newton’s laws of motion, and it includes straws and tissue paper for building a kite.

The kit includes kite tissue paper, straws, kite string, glue sticks, binder clips, a kite pattern, and instructions. The 20 x 30-inch kite tissue paper is thicker than regular tissue paper for constructing balloons, kites, and parachutes. The included kite pattern helps students to create the kite tetrahedrons. The kite project combines experiments in lift, balance, and other principles of flight with geometric concepts of angles and congruency, and it reinforces engineering, technology, and math concepts as students build and fly tetrahedral kites. A finished kite measures approximately 15 x 15 x 15 inches (H x W x D). (H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.)

The teacher’s guide includes six lessons and seven worksheets with separate activities for grades 6-8 and 9-12. Students learn STEM concepts including lift, balance, and other principles of flight as well as geometric concepts of angles and congruency through the provided lessons and hands-on activities. The guide addresses how the lessons and activities meet standards set by the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), and International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA). The 96-page guide is paperback and spiral bound for ease of use. A tetrahedral kite kit and accompanying teacher’s guide are typically used in an educational setting to demonstrate aerodynamics and geometry through hands-on activities and lesson plans.

Construction requires scissors and a ruler (both sold separately).

Science education products incorporate applied math and science principles into classroom and homeschool-based projects. Teachers in pre-K, elementary, and secondary classrooms use science education kits and products alongside science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum to demonstrate STEM concepts and real-world applications through hands-on activities. Science education projects include a broad range of activities, such as practical experiments in engineering, aeronautics, robotics, energy, chemistry, physics, biology, and geology.

Pitsco Education develops K-12 science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum, educational kits, and classroom tools. The company, founded in 1971, is headquartered in Pittsburg, KS.
