Paper Size Experiment

Students will use paper airplanes to conduct a scientific experiment to determine if the size of the paper airplane makes a difference in how it performs. Read more about this activity on our Lesson Plans for Teachers page. There are two student handouts that are identical except for the size of paper that you use. Pick the one that matches your paper. The US uses Letter Paper and most of the rest of the world uses A4 paper. Or choose the 'Advanced Math' handout where the size of paper doesn't matter and additional math is used to calculate ratios. This exercise is designed for 4th-6th grade science and math standards.
