Language: English Description: One of my earlies observations in the classroom was that kites are not just "kid's toys" but a very valuable learning tool. In fact, most students are too busy having fun with their kites to realize that they are learning. I also found that kiting can be fun or frustrating experience depending on the initial approach. In other words, it is very important is that the process be kept simple. To help eliminate potential problems, I advise teachers to make and fly several kites before conducting a class. This is very important if there are designs that they have not yet experienced. Remember, you are never to old to learn to make and fly a kite.
