Paper Planes

WATCH: How to fold 5 incredible paper planes. This video is a bit longer than usual but it is well worth it for the activity it inspires! TALK: What plane do you think is the most exciting or interesting? What one do you think does the best tricks? What happens in a competition? What about a competition for stunt planes? How could you judge them? DO: Create your own stunt plane competition. Follow the instructions in the video to create the 5 different paper planes. Allocate a panel of judges (try and include family members if they are free), choosing a scoring system and categories to judge them off - these could be height, flips, distance etc. Hold your competition and find out the winner. Share your planes with us by adding a photo, and using the label tool, tell us what you found out.
