Paper Airplanes

Book Chapter by: Donna Governor and Denise Webb Digital resources are stored online in your NSTA Library.

The guiding question for this activity is,“How can you design a paper airplane to go the farthest distance?” In this activity, students make paper airplanes to demonstrate the forces of flight. Students will also learn about force, thrust, drag, lift, and weight. Before beginning this activity, we recommend you read Chapters 9 and 12 which are in this book selection. Chapter 9 is an overview of the section and introduces the format used to present ideas for Family Science Night activities. Chapter 12 features activities that we believe to be advanced level. A materials list, references, safety notes, standards, and teacher background information are provided. This book selection also includes the Table of Contents, Preface, Acknowledgments, About the Authors, Introduction, and Index.
