This is a fun activity involving making and flying paper aeroplanes
You need five or six sheets of paper and something to measure distances with.
There is a very handy YouTube video that shows how to make five different paper aeroplanes.
Alternatively, see if someone can help your to fold an aeroplane.
If you can make a few different ones, that is ideal.
While you are folding the aeroplanes don't forget to look at the shapes that appear. You may start with a rectangle of paper, but after a fold it could become a triangle, or a pentagon.
What shapes do you see?
Okay, have you folded a few different planes?
Right, now for the real fun bit.
You are going to fly them by gently launching each on across a room. Which plane goes the furthest?
Don't forget to measure.
Does the plane go further if you angle it up as you first throw it?
What about throwing the plane with a different hand?
Try lots of different ideas and keep a note of what you find out. You could draw a graph.
