PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this memorable activity, students explore the scientific method by creating, flying, and redesigning paper airplanes. Students practice measurement and estimation, calculating averages, and graphing data. Pre- and Post-lab questions encourage critical thinking about the scientific method. I use this activity with my sophomore Biology students in the first month of school.

File includes a student lab handout with procedures and questions, a class data record sheet, and an optional graph layout sheet.
