Can It Fly?
Produced by Innovate Educate and Aviation Heritage Lincolnshire, these materials can be used to encourage children to think about what types of things can fly. There are three activities. Each activity is self-contained, and so can be run individually, or as a sequence of activities.
The activities look at:
Can it fly?
Children look at a range of items and suggest if they are able to fly or not using a presentation and a card sort activity.
Why do balloons fly?
Children investigate the lifting force produced by helium-filled balloons.
Children make and test-fly paper planes. This simple activity allows children to make paper planes and investigate different types of designs.
Background notes are included for teachers that introduce the concepts in the development of flight from hot-air balloons to powered aircraft.
