7th Grade Paper Airplane Links:
- Any plane you fold MUST USE A WHOLE SHEET OF PAPER! NO tape, staples, or cutting off paper.
- The web-link you are to use is "Paper Airplanes HQ". The other links are provided for further research outside of class.
- Two of your three planes should be on the HQ site. Use the first drop down and search all planes to find your paper airplanes.
- If you cannot find two planes on HQ look at the Fold and Fly website.
- If one of your planes is not on the HQ list or in the Fold and Fly website, you can pick a plane that the other team members in your group are not folding.
- Write some brief information describing each plan on your lab sheet. Then fold that plane. See the people in your teck group for help before asking the teacher.
- When finished folding a plane, write your name, the name of the plan and your LAB STATION (NOT teck group) number on the plane.
