Paper airplanes are filled with hands-on learning opportunities. They make great science experiments for kids as they figure out the best way to construct a paper airplane and then put it to the test. With this paper airplane printable, kids have everything they need to make their own airplanes and create their own experiment. Here's what's in the kit:
- Paper airplane printable instructions for making the classic airplane, The Dart
- Experiment to try for testing out different airplane designs
- Scientific method worksheet for using with the experiment
- Paper airplane template for those who like a steps-by-step
The paper airplane printable is designed for kids to do entirely on their own. Kids could even do it as part of our independence kit. It would also make a good classroom project so students can challenge one another to come up with the design that will go highest, fastest, and farthest.
