Learning Activities

  1. Do Now– Get out your signed Lab Safety Contract. Get out your science notebook and open to page 19. Guess what is happening in the following situation: Emily regularly visits the twelfth floor of an apartment building by going to the tenth floor in an elevator and walking up two flights of stairs. Last year she only took the elevator to the ninth floor. How come?
  2. Investigation– How can we make a paper airplane travel further? Propose an improvement in design on page 19. Include a justification for improvements and a prediction based on research. In your cooperative table group, decide on one design improvement. Form a hypothesis for your improved plane on page 19. Model how to make flip page. Design experiment/procedure and data table on flip page. On easel paper, describe your group’s design improvement and experimental design.
