Product Description
This activity/lab should be used when introducing variables to students. My students absolutely love this activity!

PURPOSE: The purpose of this activity is for students to gather some baseline information, make variables and test the results. They will also choose a paper plane design that they believe will fly the farthest and test for results. They will graph the longest and average distances flown for each of the paper plane trials.

OBJECTIVES:
1. Make and fly a paper airplane.
2. Work cooperatively with your group in collecting data.
3. Be introduced to the terms hypothesis, variable and average.
4. Follow directions in making a complex paper plane design.
5. Organize and graph data collected.

YOUR GOAL: to build the longest-flying paper plane possible!!

PROCEDURE:

You are going to be split up into four groups. Each group is going to receive one 11x14 size piece of white computer paper. Each group is going to be doing different things and adding different materials to their papers in order to make them fly the longest distance.


Students will answer pre-lab questions, post-experiment questions, labeling their variables, and creating data tables of their results.
