Product Description
Four page lab where students build paper airplanes and test them. Great to show scientific method. Here is an excerpt:
In order for their plane to get off the ground the Wright brothers needed to do many experiments using what we know as the scientific method. The scientific method is the way that scientists gather information and test ideas. In this lab you will examine the scientific method and run some of your own tests using something you probably know a great deal about, paper airplanes. You will create your own paper airplanes, and measure them fo
distance traveled, just as Orville and Wilbur must have done when they started in the field of aviation using the scientific method.

Objective: To demonstrate the principles of the scientific method using paper airplanes, and to determine the relationship between the weight of a paper airplane and its flight time.


Vocabulary: Answered in complete sentences and in your own words.
