Kindergarten Takes Flight!
January 18th, 2013
Sparked by students’ passion for creating paper airplanes, and our recent study of travel and different aircrafts, the children created paper airplanes and tested their flight outside.They predicted and tested ways that their aircraft could go farther and straighter, such as putting a paperclip on the tip of the plane! The children measured the distance of their flights and tried to determine the best approach to flying their creation.They took their observations and results and wrote about them during their Writer’s Workshop period. It was an awesome teachable moment!
