#### 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

#### 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

#### 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

#### 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

#### How Do They Do It - Jet Engines

Jet engines generally work to generate thrust by creating a high-speed exhaust. See how this is done with fans, air compressors, a combustion chamber, and fuel. The precision is specific, especially for the turbine blade. Hear exactly...

Lesson Planet

#### Rocket Transportation

Upper elementary and middle school children become aerospace engineers as balloon rockets are tested for the weight of their payloads. They construct the rockets, test and record data, and then explain ways to increase capacity. Consider...

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 activity 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 instructional activity, sudents play a game and collect statistical data. They organize and interpret the data and determine the probability of success. Students plot...

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

#### 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

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

Sixth graders discuss how simple machines overcome friction. In this simple machine lesson, 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

#### Diet Coke and Mentos - Geyser Optimization

Eighth graders optimize the eruption of soda from a soda bottle. In this optimizing the eruption of soda from a soda bottle lesson, 8th graders determine the number of mentos needed to optimize a soda eruption. Students make graphs of...

Lesson Planet

#### Solid Rocket Boosters-II

In this solid rocket boosters worksheet, students solve 2 problems using a grid showing a cross section of a proposed solid rocket booster. Students complete the grid and shade the rings of combustion in 15-second step intervals. They...

Lesson Planet

#### The Mathematics of Ion Rocket Engines

In this ion rocket engines worksheet, students read about how heavy atoms are used to create the thrust in rocket engines. They solve 5 problems including determining the speed of atoms in a satellite, finding the average acceleration of...

Lesson Planet

#### Vertical Accelerations

In this accelerations worksheet, students draw pictures and vector diagrams for the given situations and then determine the acceleration of the given objects. This worksheet has 10 word problems.

Lesson Planet

#### Understanding the Four Forces of Flight

In this four forces of flight worksheet, 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 scenario.

Lesson Planet

#### MAKE IT FLY

Students utilize the process of scientific inquiry and technological design to explain thrust, weight, lift and drag in flight. They design an "airplane" to test the "mechanics" of flight. In addition, they brainstorm and sketch a design...

Lesson Planet

#### Aqua-Thrusters!

Students construct their own rocket-powered boat called an "aqua-thruster." These aqua-thrusters will be made from a film canister and will use carbon dioxide gas - produced from a chemical reaction between an antacid tablet and water -...

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

#### Aircraft vs. Spacecraft

Students investigate differences between aircraft and spacecraft, and the differences in propulsion systems. They build pinwheel airplanes and balloon rockets. An interactive activity quizzes students on thrust.

Lesson Planet

#### What Makes Thing Fly?

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

Lesson Planet

#### Flying is a Real Drag!

In this flying worksheet, students use a diagram to answer 4 questions about lift and 2 about gravity and drag. A reference web site is given for additional activities.
