Description

This STEM task requires students to create a paper plane and launcher and measure the distance travelled using different units.

The Paper Field Games combine fun STEM challenges with curriculum content to create a fun, hands-on experience for your students.

In this event, students will create a launcher using various materials and adjust their design to make their plane launch as far as possible.

During the challenge and measurement phase, students will measure the distance using centimetres and then convert to metres (using decimal notation) before displaying using metres and centimetres (e.g. 1m 23 cm)

The resource includes five discussion questions to prompt student reflection at the end of the activity.

The resource includes a teacher instruction page, student instructions, a student recording sheet and a reflection question page. Print one recording sheet per team or student, depending on your preference.
