This mini lesson is sure to have your students excited about measuring lengths. This flights lesson takes the paper airplane (that we are always telling students not to make) and uses it to engage students in learning without them realizing it.
By the end of this lesson your students should be able to convert from feet to inches and inches to feet, accurately record data and even reflect on how the lesson could be used in a real life situation.
Included are the common core standards for the lesson, chart, lesson plan and questions. Get creative with this lesson and your students will be amazed at what they have accomplished.
