Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Introduction to a Flight Computer

Introduce high schoolers to the mathematics of aeronautics with a three-lesson unit module that examines the calculations flight computers make and the maintenance graphs airline mechanics must keep. Class members use what they have...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### The Tech Challenge 2016 lessons

Challenge young flight engineers to design a flying device for Ant-Man, balloon crafts that have neutral buoyancy, paper airplanes from different types of paper, hoop gliders, and a launcher for ping pong balls. Although designed for the...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Up, Up and Away! - Airplanes

Oh, if only Sir Isaac and Bernoulli could see us now. Even Orville and Wilbur would be amazed by what engineers have designed using their ideas. Next generation engineers put these principles to use as they use what they learn about...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Future Flights: Imagine Your Own Flying Machines!

What will flying look like in the future? The 21st lesson in a 22-part unit on aviation reviews the major aspects of the lesson. Pupils brainstorm ideas of a future flying machine.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Better By Design

Which modification is the best? Using the scientific method, pairs determine the effects of each control surface on the distance of a glider's flight. The activity, section 16 in a 22-part unit on aviation, allows pupils to gain a better...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Airplane Tails and Wings: Are You in Control?

Keep everything under control. The lesson, the 16th segment in a 22-part unit, provides a more detailed look at the parts of a plane, specifically the control surfaces. Pupils learn about the construction of the wings and the tails and...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Building-Testing-Improving Paper Airplanes: Head's Up!

Take foldables to all new heights. Pupils build and fly different types of paper airplanes in the 14th portion of a 22-part unit on aviation. Groups collect data on distance and flight time for each plane and compare the data from the...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Take Off with Paper Airplanes

Let's go fly a kite ... oops, a paper airplane! The 13th segment in an aviation unit of 22 relates the parts of an airplane to paper airplanes. Pupils learn the functions of the control surfaces of a plane to really make their knowledge...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Engineering Takes Flight

Groups explore concepts of flight by creating paper airplanes from different types of paper and testing their flight. They use the results to identify the optimal material.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Flight Dreams - Folding into Flight

Combine measurement, following directions, physics, and art with one fun activity. Learners read a set of instruction to create three different kinds of paper airplanes. They measure, fold, and fly the planes, and record data and answer...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Principles of Flight: Flying Paper Airplanes

Students investigate ways to enhance an object's flying ability. In this model construction lesson, students construct two paper airplanes, one of which is twice as big as the first. Students compare and contrast the two separate...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Aviation, Aeronautics and Aerodynamics

Students investigate the physics of flight through various experiments. In this physics lesson, students construct different flying objects. They explain the dynamics that make these object fly.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Build a Paper Plane

Students study the history of the paper plane. In this design lesson students create several types of paper planes and determine if there is a difference in mean flight distances.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Exploring Aerodynamics

Students explore aerodynamics. In this aerodynamics lesson plan, students study the flight patterns of three paper airplanes and discover the underlying principles of aerodynamics. Resources and grade level modifications are present.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Inventors and Inventions 2:Air and Space

Students fly their own paper airplanes. In this flight lesson, students create paper airplanes and see whose plane will fly the farthest. They discuss what factors affect the flight and attempt to create a plane that will go farther.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Paper Dart Airplane

Students create a paper dart airplane and measure its flight pattern. In this flight lesson, students follow the included directions to build their own paper airplane. The students change the aileron configurations to see how it affects...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Symmetry in Paper Airplanes

Students explore symmetry. In this geometry and scientific inquiry lesson, students design paper airplanes with middle line symmetry, as well as right, obtuse, and acute angles. Students measure the plane's angles using a protractor,...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Aviation Lesson #2

Young scholars make an airplane. For this aviation lesson, students review what they have learned about planes and aviation through the books they've read. Young scholars build their own airplane and conduct an airplane flight event.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Bernoulli's Principle

Learners explore Bernoulli's principle, how it is related to flight, and the effect of lift, thrust, and drag on flight. They design and develop an experiment that tests for distance traveled by their paper airplane, and record and...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### FLIGHT FAIR

Students conduct their personal investigations into paper airplane flight. Cooperative teams are formed, with students choosing the paper airplane design that they are most interested in building.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Design a Paper Airplane

Young scholars study examples of paper airplanes and then create their own paper airplane models.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Paper Gliders

Sixth graders study friction and drag. For this science lesson, 6th graders use different models of gliders and test to see which of the gliders fly the farthest. Students analyze their data and construct a graph.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Paper Airplanes & Scientific Methods

Seventh graders examine how to define scientific inquiry and the scientific method. In this paper airplane instructional activity students research airplanes, take notes then create an airplane trial.
