X-Gliders: Exploring Flight Research with Experimental Gliders

Young engineers build a glider, and they experiment with ways to change the flight characteristics of the glider. There are some templates embedded in the plan that learners can use as guides to cut out their gliders. The templates are terrific, and the tips given on how they can adjust the flight patterns are very interesting. Young scholars measure and record the distance of each of their flights, and they work together to find the design that performed the best.

I train teachers pre-K-12 to use the arts to teach any subject (arts integration). Lesson Planet has given me some great ideas to share as we all attempt to make the arts an important part of every child's education.
