Product Description
Adaptable as a 4 hour lesson (with an extension) or a 1 hour purposeful Halloween activity exploring a Next Generation Science Standard . . . this works either way!

Includes printable patterns so you'll be ready to go today!

In this lesson, students explore the concept of air resistance/gravity and unbalanced forces, engineer a paper helicopter from blueprints, and transform the helicopters into spinning vampires or other “creatures of the air.” In an extension option or independent study, students use the engineering process for an additional assignment—making their own “helicopter leaf.”
