"The Wright Stuff" online project.
This is a
ONE-DAY project to take place on December 17th which is the
100th Anniversay of the Wright Bros. Flyer Flight!
for the directions your students will be using for the plane.
The site is "The
Simple Dart Airplane" and it is a simple pattern
and usable with all ages!!
PLEASE use this airplane design ONLY!!
will be flying their airplanes TWICE and recording their longest
flight on the provided template.
You will need some sort of measuring tool to record their flights.
(I suggest sticky notes and measuring tapes!)
will submit the results from the TWO longest
flights only. (we are NOT doing the top boy and
top girl) Flight distances need to be in FEET and INCHES
and please round to the nearest inch.
(However, I encourage you to do activities
with your students to gather averages, means, etc)
be posted in graphical form to show the average of all flights
submitted. We will also be posting the top flights per grade.
the worksheets and activities which are provided to make this
a day your students will remember!! If you have any ideas you
would like to contribute, please email
them to me. You will be given FULL credit!
You are invited
to send in 3 photos (250x200dpi -- gif
format) which will be added to our PhotoAlbum!
