Product Description
The Aerobie is a commercially produced flying ring that has achieved record distances of 1,333 feet. The aerodynamics are quite complex, but your students will appreciate the science behind this toy when they are done and have a great time creating it!

This cardboard version flies straight and true and can attain distances greater than a football field with my students.

Build time is about 90 minutes with student notes, 3 hours if you have them create packaging. Extend the project by having students learn to do tricks or design materials and packaging to go with it. You can grade these based on the construction and performance, or have students design materials and packaging to go with i. For younger students, you can add an art component by having students decorate them.

The package includes a) power point presentation, b) teacher instructions, c) Student handout, and d) two versions of the grading rubric.
