Lesson Planet

#### Equal and Opposite Thrust in Aircraft: You're a Pushover!

It's the law—every action requires a reaction, no matter how small. Pupils experience two demonstrations of Newton's third law of motion as it relates to thrust in the 10th segment of a 22-part unit on flight. Using their mathematical...

Lesson Planet

#### Physics Tug of War

Slide books with a little assistance from Newton. Using books, groups create a demonstration of Newton's Second Law of motion. Pupils compare the distance traveled by one and two books when they apply a force to them.

Lesson Planet

#### Fun with Bernoulli

Reduce the pressure in the classroom. The second instructional activity in an Airplanes unit of 22 introduces the class to Bernoulli's Principle. Pupils demonstrate the principle by blowing between different objects causing a reduction...

Lesson Planet

#### Balsa Glider Competition

Change one variable and try again. Teams build basic balsa gliders and collect data on their flight distances and times. Through collaboration, the team decides on two modifications to make to the basic design and collect data for the...

Lesson Planet

#### Will It Fly?

Go fly a kite, then fly a plane! The 19th part of a 22-part unit on aviation looks at the way kites and gliders help aid in the understanding of flight. Pupils discuss how engineers used kites to influence airplane designs.

Lesson Planet

#### Airplanes Everywhere: Land! Water! Sky! Oh, My!

How important is aviation? Using the background information, teachers provide the class with a brief history of aviation. The class discusses how airplanes are important to the area of transportation in the 17th installment of a...

Lesson Planet

#### 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

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

Keep everything under control. The activity, 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

#### 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

#### 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

#### 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

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

Force the plane through the air. The lesson plan introduces the force on an airplane that makes it go forward. Pupils learn how Newton's laws of motion apply to flight in the eighth segment of a 22-part unit on flight.

Lesson Planet

#### Bend That Bar

Bend it, but don't break it. Groups investigate the strength of different materials. Using a procedure in the seventh segment of a 22-part series on aviation, pupils determine how far a rod will bend. They determine the strength-to-mass...

Lesson Planet

#### Can You Take the Pressure?

Do not let the pressure get to you. The first lesson in a unit of 22 introduces the concept of air pressure. Using background knowledge, the resource gives teachers the information they need to discuss how people measure air pressure and...

Lesson Planet

#### What Flies?

Young learners consider what flies and what kinds of sounds airplanes, animals, etc. make when they fly. They also get to generate a brainstorm list. Children discuss what the categories should be once the list is completed. Some really...

Lesson Planet

#### The Wright Brothers: Heroes of Ohio

Although a lesson plan for use by a teacher, this resource could be used in the classroom to guide a discussion about the book Heroes of Ohio by Rick Sowash. The book, about the Wright Brothers, provides the basis for a discussion of...

Lesson Planet

#### Web Adventure -- Oakland to Chicago Flight

Students develop an awareness of mathematics in a diverse number of careers, then describe three duties of a pilot that require mathematical skills. They increase understanding of interpreting data relationships presented in table format.

Lesson Planet

#### Transportation Then and Now

Compare and contrast how transportation has changed throughout the years. This image-driven slide show depicts a variety of advances in transportation. Covered wagons, coaches, trolley cars, boats, and bikes are shown as they were in the...

Lesson Planet

#### Flying Machines (ESL Lesson)

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a...hang glider? This ESL presentation is about vehicles that fly. From airplanes to rockets and blimps, the slides include vibrant illustrations that will help English learners identify common flying...

Lesson Planet

#### Hey, Bernoulli...Need a Lift?

Students investigate the principles of flight. In this "flight" physics lesson, students brainstorm animals and objects that fly and any characteristics they have in common. Students view a video and construct a boomerang according to...

Lesson Planet

#### The Art of "Green" Flying

Students create an airship that doesn't use fossil fuel. In this flying lesson, students research different types of flying machines that only use wind power. They discuss invention designs by Alexander Graham Bell and Leonardo Da Vinci...

Lesson Planet

#### Airplane Design

Young scholars design an airplane. In this transportation lesson, students review the parts of an airplane and their functions. Young scholars work in groups to design their own airplane, reflect on the ideal plane, and compare it to...

Lesson Planet

#### Principles of Flight: Where are We?

Students explore the concept of topographical maps. In this topographical map lesson, students discuss how airplanes know where to fly. Students use topographical maps to simulate a field trip on the computer.

Lesson Planet

#### An Uplifting Experience

Fifth graders research and complete a graphic organizer about the principles of flight. In this aviation lesson, 5th graders experiment to understand the work of Daniel Bernouli and his discoveries about air pressure. Students create...
