A Time For Flight

For Teachers 6th - 8th
Students visit the Henry Ford Museum to view an exhibit on flight. They take notes using a pilot log worksheet and create a timeline. They share their timeline with the class and use the internet to gather more information.
Lesson Planet

How Things Fly

For Teachers 4th - 8th
Learners, by drawing on their own experiences, discuss and examine the basic physics of flight. They participate in a variety of activities regarding flight.
Lesson Planet

An Uplifting Experience

For Teachers 4th - 6th
Students examine the forces that affect the flight of airplanes through the use of paper airplanes. They conduct Internet research, conduct experiments demonstrating Bernoulli's Principle, and design and construct a paper airplane.
Lesson Planet

Come Fly With Me...Aviation

For Teachers 4th - 8th
Students conduct internet research on aviation and pioneer aviators. They create an alphabet book r with flight related terms, write a short biography of a pioneer aviator and take part in a paper plane flying contest.
Lesson Planet

Similiar Triangles in Flight

For Teachers 9th - 10th
Students, using the Internet, examine similiar triangles in remote sensing photography. They make a clinometer to measure the height of items around the school.
Lesson Planet

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Students read text from a NASA Web-based textbook then demonstrate an understanding of the text by using it to complete an activity on aircraft trajectories.
Lesson Planet

Using Graphs to Compare

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Students use the FoilSim computer simulation program, and demonstrate an understanding of the lift variables by explaining their graphical representations. They demonstrate an understanding of forces and motion.
Lesson Planet

Demonstrate Flight

For Teachers 3rd - 5th
Learners measure the distance and duration of flight . The learner compare and contrast the Blunt Nose and The Dart.
