Product Description
Few things fascinate kids more than flight. Fortunately, we will be learning about it by building something else that kids love - paper airplanes!

In this lesson kids will:
- Practice coordination in folding paper airplanes
- Learn four basic forces behind flying
- See flight forces in action!
- Throw a lot of paper airplanes

Keep it simple by explaining some of the basic forces to the younger kids. Or ramp it up with some serious flight testing and graphing for the older kids. Either way, they will love folding and throwing the airplanes!
