The difference between birds and planes
Hello 6B,
I am here today to teach you an amusing lesson on the difference between birds and planes.

Lets Gets Started. . .
Birds Wings
Birds flap their wings to boost themselves forward.
They twist their wings to maneuver.
Birds eat seeds and bugs to get energy which will allow them to fly in the air.
Birds can change their wing span shape by making it longer or shorter.
The species have a complex structure of their wings, which includes a terminal phalanx, basal phalanx, metacarpus, unare, radiale, ulna, radius, numerous, coracoid, blade of scapula, tertials, primaries, and secondaries.
Airplanes fly with a propeller that spins around.
Planes are made of electrical wires and cables to create a series of movements.
Planes need fuel to fly which would energize the plane to fly across the sky.
Airplanes can twist and turn to soar through the air.
The airplane's wings provides lift only, and the engines or gravity would provide thrust.
The structure of the wing contains a wing tip, the wing flaps, a spar, the fuel tank,the ribs, an aileron, stringers, and the skin of the wing.
Interesting Facts
There are around 10,000 different species of birds worldwide.
The ostrich is the largest bird in the world.
Birds are intelligent to make their own tools.
20% of the bird species migrate long distances every year.
The Archaepteryx lived about 150 million years ago.
The egg of a humming bird is the smallest worldwide.
A bird's heartbeats 400 times/minute while resting, and while it's flying it beats 1000 times/minute.
Birds flap their wings to fly while airplanes use a propeller.Airplanes use cables, and electrical wires to maneuver whereas birds twist their wings to maneuver. Fuel is planes trick to fly and the birds require seeds and bugs to soar across the sky. Birds can change their wing span's shape while airplanes can twist and turn but are not able to change their wing span's. Birds wings provides thrust and lift however, airplanes wings only gives lift after engines, or gravity would provide electricity.

Primary-An original document, for example a diary, or notebook.

Secondary-The information that is reworded from an original document.

-Two pop cans
-A blank piece of paper and a pencil to write observations
Step 1: Answer this question before you conduct the experiment. The question is whether the two cans will collide together together or separate when you blow in between the two cans, given.
Step 2: Place 2 cans across each other leaving a 0.5cm gap in between the two cans.
Step 3: Give a powerful blow in between the can's miniature gap.
Step 4:Take observations while conducting this experiment.

-One blank piece of paper
-Take another lines piece of paper and a pencil to write observations
Step 1: Create a paper plane in your group by designing your own plane.
Step 2: Soar your own paper plane that you designed through the air.
Step 3: Take observations of the plane's techniques.
