This week our objective was "wings help things fly". We began our lesson by observing a paper as it fell to the floor. It didn't fly at all. We thought like scientists to try to think of ways we could make the paper fly. I made a simple whirlybird (a straight piece of paper cut in half at the top and then folded down as wings) and the students observed that the whirlybird could fly because it had wings. We then made paper airplanes and ended our lessons with observing whose paper airplane could fly the furthest in a quick contest. The students loved the lesson, but most importantly they were all able to restate the objective at the end of the lesson that wings help things fly!
