Airboats

Oh what fun! Make a forceful impact on your physics fans by having them construct mini air boats. They use a balloon to propel paper boats across their tabletops. They choose a variable to alter: size, shape, materials, and fly their boats again. This is an exciting exploration of Newton's laws of motion, and the teacher's notes leave you well-prepared.
