Story Starters

Question: If you were to give your mother a day with no housework, what things would you do to help out?

Answer by Jordan: If there was no work for one day I would help with the baby and help with my brothers with their home work and school work. If there were school that day I would go to school and get the work I had to get done that day. I would probably get my homework done and then play for the rest of the day. It would be fun and you should always do some work even if you don’t want to do it.

Question: Garber's kites were not only used for target practice; they were also used to carry important papers from ship to aircraft. In what other ways might a kite be used as a tool rather than a toy?

Answer by Jeffrey: Garber kites can also be a warning sign to airplanes. They can let pilots know they are in a restricted area. It can let people know that they are near a certain area. It could be used as an explosive device. You could probably use a kite for the armed forces. You could probably attach a camera to it. It could take pictures from the kite. They could camouflage it to blend in with its surroundings. So the Garber Kite could be used for the army. I think you could put some together to make a bigger kite to send letters to and from the planes in the sky. You could have kite shows. You could do all kinds of things with kites. Kites are the coolest things ever made.
