All science teachers need a solid lab to start off the school year. The Paper Airplane Lab is the answer! This lab is perfect for middle school students, as it gives them some freedom to design and test paper airplanes, while following the scientific method. Students work in pairs to research airplane models, construct and collect data on at least five paper airplane models, and analyze their data.
The lab includes research, writing a hypothesis, materials/procedures, data collection, data analysis and graphing, conclusion, and error analysis.
