Consider a Kite’s Point of ViewWhen the wind whips up, we know you know what to do … Go fly a kite! Okay, so that’s an obvious activity when fall brings falling leaves and great gusts of wind. But we have some suggestions that we bet you haven’t thought of. Have you ever imagined what it must be like for a kite soaring overhead?!
Of course, you need to find a nice open space to fly a kite. Remember … NEVER fly a kite near power lines or places where your kite might get caught in something. If you were a kite, would you want to be stuck in a tree or worse, electrocuted? No way, José! (Okay, good. Now you’re thinking like a kite.) With some help from friends and family, try to get your kite waaaaaayyyyyy up in the air. Now, consider what it might be like for your high-flying kite.
How many feet high are you? How cold is it up there? How fast is the wind blowing? What does it look like up there? Once your kite comes back down, go inside and continue to consider the kite’s point of view. Draw a picture of what you think the kite saw when it looked down to the ground. Maybe you can write a poem about being a kite. There are a lot of things you can think to do if you let your imagination soar … you know, like a kite!
