What creates the lift in Kites?

Today's sign language challenge was, "Can I go to the restroom?" YES! Continuing with our study of kites (invention from Ancient China) we discussed 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 built an airfoil and tested it out. They REALLY enjoyed testing out this theory in front of my fan!
