Paper Airplanes!

The Science chapter we’re currently studying is about Technology and Design.  Today we started talking about the design process: making a model, testing the model, and changing things to improve the model.

Once our paper airplanes were designed, we took them to the gym for testing.  After a few trial flights, we found that planes with long, narrow wing designs fly farther than designs with wide, short wings.

Ready, set…

We had a contest for whose plane could stay in the air the longest, and whose flew the furthest.  These are our two winners.
