Paper Airplanes

Yes, you read that right.  The students had the chance yesterday to actually make paper airplanes in class…with permission from the teacher!  🙂  Our latest Science chapter is all about technology and the design process.  We began our exploration of how the design process works with a little designing of our own!

After building our models, we took them to the gym for a test flight.

Finally, we had a few competitions to see which designs worked best for different purposes.  Here are the winners for longest airtime and furthest distance!
