Benjamin Franklin DANGER KITE

By Natalie Castrejon

Benjamin Franklin flew a kite in 1752 and survived.The only person he told was his son.

He wanted to prove that there is enough energy to create static electricity from the heavens.He wet some twine,and attached it to a silk kite with a metal rod and a metal key.On a windy day,he flew a kite out of a window of a shack.After some time,he finally got what he was waiting for,enough energy to spark his knuckle with the key."My prediction was true!There is electricity in the heavens!''Benjamin Franklin said.Luckily fro him,the storm was not big enough to take his life.
