PAPER PLANE RACE
This Web Quest continues with the Fun Olympics theme of the Chapter 5 Chapter Task. Individually, students will choose and print an airplane design chosen from a group of Web sites. They will make their planes, name them and measure their length using an appropriate unit of measurement. In groups of 4, students will conduct a paper airplane race. For this part of the activity you will need a lot of space. They will be responsible for recording information about each plane and their flight distances. As a group, they will decide what unit of measurement they will use to measure flight distances and choose a winner. Each student will explain how he or she came to this decision in writing.
