Gliding is a way of flying without power. It’s used by lots of animal species, from pterosaurs to modern animals like flying squirrels, flying fish, ants, spiders – and even gliding squid! In the last 150 years, humans have learnt how to glide, and have developed unpowered flying machines to soar high up into the sky. This explanation text is for year 5 and P6 linking to the topic ‘forces’.
