Exercise #2: Paper Airplane Challenge
- The students will create paper airplanes that are able to fly.
- The students will learn to work through the creative process and respond to changes when their ideas aren’t working.
- The students will communicate ideas with each other.
Supplies: Paper (5), Scissors
Break students into groups of two.
Students have the class period to create 2 paper airplanes. One should be as large as they can make and fly as far as possible, and the other should be as small as possible and fly as far as possible.
Near the end of class allow some time for all of the groups to test their planes against each other, to see which ones do fly the farther.
