Alanna and Kevin hear woeful sounds emanating from the Workshop where they find Uncle Norm all twisted up in string with what sort of looks like a kite dangling from the end of it. (Think Charlie Brown.) Norm puts on his best casual look and tries to hop over to the Rads. Uncle Norm explains that he saw people in the park having a lot of fun while flying kites and figured he’d make one for the Kids. Unfortunately, he wasn’t too successful. He holds up his sad, little makeshift kite. It promptly droops over. (SX slide whistle) Luckily Kevin knows a person who knows all about kites. He’ll get the info and relay it back to Uncle Norm. “This WE gottasee!”
The Gist: This episode is about the properties of a kite. Through the construction of a simple kite, we reinforce the concept of symmetry, perimeter; congruence (i.e.,there are two sets of adjacent sides [next to each other] that are the same length [congruent] and there is one set of congruent angles. [These are opposite of each other and are between sides that are different lengths.]); and, the right angle (i.e.,the intersection of the diagonals of a kite form 90 degree (right) angles. [Thismeans that they are perpendicular. The longer diagonal of a kite bisects the shorter one. This means that the longer diagonal cuts the shorter one in half.]).
