Individual Project #6



Now you get to make your own airplane!

Materials Required

  1. A standard sheet of writing paper.
  2. A paper clip
  3. Scissors (be very careful).

First fold the paper as shown in the diagram below. Next, take the scissors and carefully make a 1/2" cut in each wing, these are your elevators. Place the paperclip on the end the nose of the plane (experiment with the paper clip to obtain the proper balance). Adjust the elevators to control the direction of flight just as the pilot does in a real airplane.

Now you can have a contest with your friends and see whose airplane can fly the farthest!
