    I'm just looking for a little inspirtation and wondered if anyone knew of a good experiment for my year 6 class on air resistance please

    Easiest experiment ever- with sheets of card/stiff paper they run across the playground holding the paper above their heads. Time each run and the change the size of paper. The bigger the paper, the slower the pace, the higher the air resistance!
    Fun too!

    Interesting booklet here. It includes more details of the idea suggested by sallylou in Activity 1.
