This week for our enrichment activity we tried to make and modify paper airplanes that would travel the farthest distance. We first tested out a “basic” paper airplane. Then we researched airplanes and either made a completely new model or modified our basic model. We added weight (paperclips and staples) to different parts of the airplane to see what that would do. We changed the shape of the wings by cutting or folding them, and we altered the amount of “drag” by opening the middle up a little more or taping it shut. The airplane that flew the farthest traveled 26 feet (the entire length of our classroom), it would have traveled farther but it crashed into the wall.
