Requirements for the Motor Away Wolf Adventure
- Do the following:
- Create and fly three different types of paper airplanes. Before launching them, record which one you believe will travel the farthest and what property of the plane leads you to make that prediction.
- Make a paper airplane catapult. Before launching it, record how far you believe it will travel and explain what information you used to make this prediction. After you make your prediction, launch the plane and measure how far it flies.
- Make two different boats and sail them. Choose different shapes for your boats. Sail your boats in the water by blowing air on the sail. While sailing your boats, notice how they are similar and how they are different. Discuss your findings with your den, and decide if you think the differences will affect the way they propel through the water.
- Create a car that moves under its own power.
