Much like our Wind car trials in science, I had the children build paper airplanes for two days and figure out which on they wanted to enter into the contest. One child went home and watched you tube videos and built a plane that passed all the others.
I didn't put many restrictions on their planes only that they had to fold their final one independently on a special piece of paper I gave them the final day.
We flew in the cafeteria for the contest and then went out side for more fun. There was so much sharing , clapping, encouragement and fun! What a fun way to fly into the next grade and end our final day.
Have a great summer everyone!
