Year 1B - Engineering - Paper planes.

During STEAM week class 1B constructed paper aeroplanes. They discussed which material would be most suitable, unanimously agreeing paper because it is light. They then used their own knowledge to design and construct their own plane. The children tested how far their planes travelled and compared their plane to their peers discussing whose had travelled the furthest distance and whose had travelled the shortest distance. We then discussed how we could modify our planes to make them travel further.
