"I put this (tape) on (the nose) so it would be stronger when it hits the ground." - Nora
Hello everyone. What a frightful Friday it is! But that never stops KW from our amazing work. As many of you know, we have been constructing paper airplanes. This week, we have been testing different designs, adding passengers and changing elevation levels.
A Deeper Dive into Measuring Distance
We noticed that different friends took different sized steps when they measured how far their paper airplanes flew. For example, C.C. took small steps when measuring the flight of her plane but Jack took much larger steps. The steps were not a uniform unit of measurement. To more accurately measure the distance of our paper airplanes, we went to Blake Hall and measure with a tape measure in inches and threw from the same location.
Each friend had 3 tries to see how far their plane went. Inbetween throws, KW children were encouraged to see what modifications they could make such as adding passengers or fixing creases that had come undone.
After each throw, our friends practiced using a tape measure to measure the distance
