# D'S KITE SITE

## IMAGINE IT! BUILD IT! FLY IT!

STEP 1:  The first step in the process involved making blueprint for the kite I wanted to build.  The kite I chose was the diamond kite.  I chose this design because I thought it would fly the best compared to the bermuda, Della Porta, and delta kites and that it would be easy to decorate.
STEP 2: Build It! We built a actual kite in science class for the  well first we taped 2 trash bags together, next wetaped the dowels together, we attached the dowels to the trash bags, next we cut the bag to fit the dowels and then we made the bridles and attahced the bridle and the yarn together and wrapped it around a popsicle stick. But, when we wen t to fly it it broke and fell a lot.
STEP 3: Fly It! The last step is to make a final kite with the same directions but make sure it is air tight. And when i went home i made the final kite for my group our kite was silver and gold.

## THE THEME OF THE KITE AND CHARACTERISTICS

When you fly our kite feels like LeBron James dunking on the Bulls.
The theme of our kite is Swag and basketball combined to react one great kite.
The surface area of my kite is 4,435 square inches

Problem 1: In 1820 George Pocock connected several large kites to a carriage and pulled it from Southhampton to London. Since road taxes were based on the number of horses used to pull a carriage, he was able to avoid any taxes! The 60 mile trip took two hours. Modern kite buggies now go twice as fast but seldom go as far. How fast was the carriage moving? By my calculations, the carriage was moving BLANK miles per hour.

Problem 2: In the year 169 BC, the Chinese General Han Hsin used a kite to measure the distance between his camp and the wall of the enemy city. His soldiers then dug a tunnel the same distance in order to crawl under the wall and attack from inside. The city was conqured by a kite! How can you measure a minimum distance with a kite? By, blah blah blah and blah blah blah.
