#### Science of the Winter Olympic Games: Engineering Competition Suits

What a thrilling job for an engineer: designing advanced athletic competition suits! Which materials can most reduce friction and drag, and yet still be flexible enough to move with the athlete's body? With attention focused on Shani...

Lesson Planet

#### Design a Bobsled

Students apply their knowledge of friction, drag, mass and gravity as they design, build, and test mini-bobsleds.

Lesson Planet

#### Wright Again: 100 Years of Flight

Aspiring aeronautical engineers demonstrate different forces as they construct and test paper airplanes. This lesson plan links you to a website that models the most effective paper airplane design, an animation describing the forces...

Lesson Planet

#### What a Drag!

Stop and drop what is in your hand! Pupils investigate how form effects drag in the 12th part of a 22-part unit on aviation. Groups create equally weighted objects and determine which one falls the fastest by collecting data.

Lesson Planet

#### May the Force Be With You: Drag

Do not let friction drag you down! The 11th segment in a series of 22 focuses on the fourth force acting upon an airplane—drag. Pupils learn about the effects and causes of drag.

Lesson Planet

#### Playing with Parachutes

This lesson certainly will not be a drag! Little engineers design parachutes that make use of air resistance and, as a result, slow the descent of the payload as much as possible. It is an opportunity to teach about many motion concepts:...

Lesson Planet

#### Blow-and-Go Parachute

Students design a skydiver and parachute constraption to demonstrate how drag caused by air resistance slows the descent of skydivers as they travel back to Earth. They experience how gravity pulls the skydiver toward the earth and how...

Lesson Planet

#### Computing the Net Force

Adorable little stick figures push and pull a cart of blocks to explain the push and pull of forces. Future physicists then define force and identify it in different situations on the worksheet that follows. Concepts covered include...

Lesson Planet

#### Graphing the Four Forces

Using the Cartesian coordinate system, future flight experts plot points to determine whether or not an airplane will fly. With the four forces of weight, lift, drag, and thrust represented in different quadrants, your physics learners...

Lesson Planet

#### Rescue Mission Game

Students conduct probability experiments. In this rescue mission lesson, sudents play a game and collect statistical data. They organize and interpret the data and determine the probability of success. Students plot points on a...

Lesson Planet

#### Crash Course in Flight

High school physicists demonstrate Bernoulli's Principle by blowing on different items and finding that they do not move in the expected direction! They apply Bernoulli's equation to the flight of an airplane. This well-organized lesson...

Lesson Planet

#### The Physics of Flight

Three activities allow young flight engineers to understand the 4 principles of flight (weight, lift, thrust, and drag), to construct a glider, and to create a propeller. Multicultural history and literature are integrated by reading...

Lesson Planet

#### Hovering Plane

Bring Bernoulli's principle before the eyes of your earth scientists! By setting two fans up facing each other, you can get a paper airplane to hover between them. Lift and drag concepts can be taught when you show this clip or perform...

Lesson Planet

#### What Makes Airplanes Fly?

Students examine force and conduct activities that model parachutes and helicopters. In this airplanes lesson students identify the forces that make airplanes fly higher and land.

Lesson Planet

#### Forces

These simple slides are basic, but clear, in their summary of physical forces. Definitions of friction, air resistance, gravity, freefall and projectiles are given along with a couple of helpful diagrams. More examples always help to...

Lesson Planet

#### Applied Science -Technology (6B) Pre Lab

Sixth graders discuss how simple machines overcome friction. In this simple machine activity, 6th graders review the parts of a plane and how they make up for gravity and friction. They roll different objects down an inclined board...

Lesson Planet

#### Boomerangs Keep Coming Back

Students investigate the flight of paper boomerangs. In this flight instructional activity, students examine the flight variables of paper boomerangs, which they make, by investigating the concepts of lift and drag. They examine what...

Lesson Planet

#### Understanding the Four Forces of Flight

In this four forces of flight instructional activity, students read a 1 page article on flights, answer 5 questions with multiple choice answers, draw a line to connect the four forces to their definitions and answer 1 short answer...

Lesson Planet

#### Kite building activity

Students explore how a kite flies; this lesson is a precursor for the windmill activity. By exploring how a kite flies, the students explore the power of the wind; particulary how drag, lifft and gravity enable objects such as kites and...

Lesson Planet

#### Design a Parachute

Learners engage in a discussion about what a parachute is and how it works. They create a parachute using different materials that they think will work best. The students test their designs, which will be followed by a class discussion...

Lesson Planet

#### TE Activity: Heavy Helicopters

Students study the concepts of weight and drag while making paper helicopters. They measure how adding more weight to the helicopter changes the time for the helicopter to fall to the ground. They apply what they examine to the work of...

Lesson Planet

#### Flight

Students are introduced to the four forces of flight--drag, lift, thrust, and weight--through a variety of fun-filled flight experiments. They "fly" for short periods and evaluate factors that might either increase or decrease their...

Lesson Planet

#### What Makes Thing Fly?

Second graders study lift, drag and thrust from a real flight instructor. For this physical science lesson students build and fly paper airplanes and experiment with variations and design.
