Making a condor plane
Science can seem a lot like playing sometimes
As a large bird, do you think a condor flies short or long distances?
What do wing size and long travels have to do with the type of food a condor eats?
Why would a condor have an adaption for soaring and not for flapping?
Can you measure how far your condor flies? If don't have a measuring tape use your condor model from the earlier lesson!
