Flying Kites
Don McCasland is an expert on kites. He showed us how to create kites, step by step and where to fly them. He described to us when the best time to fly a kite is and what kind of areas are best for flying kites. Wide open spaced areas without trees are best areas for flying kites. The best kind of weather for flying kites is windy. A windy type of weather is good mainly because it helps to keep the kite in the air and moving nice and swiftly. Wind energy and windmills can compare to kites by how wind mills use wind to move. This is the same with kites because of how it uses wind to move and the more energy in the wind the faster a windmill moves as well as kites, its speed and how fast it moves in the air and turns.
