Grade 8 Science-Credible Scientist

We registered real data, with real objects such as a timer, real paper for the paper flyer, and a real ruler to measure the distance between the stairs and the floor. We dropped the whirlybird from stairs and when it started dropping we starting timing the drop and when it touched the ground we stopped the timer. We registered the data on a table.

The dependent variable was the time it takes for whirlybird to fall and the units measure where in seconds using a stopwatch, the independent is the number of paper clips.
