EPIC PaperšŸ„¤ Cup Boomerang & HelicopteršŸš-STEM PROJECT

Grades: 5th Grade, 6th Grade, 4th Grade
Subjects: Science, Home Learning, STEAM

Student Instructions

Lets see how to take a paperšŸ„¤ cup and turn it into an amazing spinningšŸš helicopter and returning boomerang--the FIRST of its kind! Go to the link pages and watch the how to video's. When your ready collect your materials and start your video diary of your construction steps. Go to seesaw and add your response. Take photo and finally a video of your competed model on its maiden voyage. Instructions: We will divide the cup into 8 different sections by cutting it, then folding the sections down. Folding 4 will allow you to make the helicopter. Interlocking the other 4 will allow you to make the boomerang. Grab your materials below and try it out! Materials: +Paper Cup - I found nearly any paper cup will work, however, some may fly or spin better than others. Also, the height of paper cups is directly related to the distance it can go. Plastic cups are NOT good for the boomerang and are really a poor material to use for this craft. (Some claim they may work with tape, however) +Scissors - We will need to make several cuts in the cup to divide it, and also if you would like to shape it in certain ways. +Tape - Not always a necessity, but for certain cups, helps keep the air foil secure and allows the boomerang to spin and return better.
