Thrust and lift in AIM

Today's sign language challenge was, "Can I go to the restroom?" YES! We also read the book The Warlords Kite and did a mini lesson on how to solve the area of a square (it goes along with book). We reviewed our definition of "thrust" and discussed why some fliers worked and others didn't. With our remaining time we started to discuss lift and how the curve of a wing creates lift (the faster moving air on the top of the wing creates less air pressure and can therefore lift vs. the slow moving air on the flat bottom part of the wing. We will test that theory out next week!
