Air Time

Students in Rachel Huggins’ third-grade class at C-4 Elementary in Arkansas City have been learning about air resistance and how it affects the speed at which an object falls. Students designed and crafted their own parachutes to attach to a plastic cup containing a rock. Huggins dropped each device from the roof and timed their descent to the ground.
