Today's Test Flights

Parents, it was so good to see so many of you at Open House last night.  We thought you might enjoy seeing a few pictures of your students today testing their paper airplane hypotheses.  Our results varied depending on the impact of the damp grass, the wind, the time of day our test flights occurred, etc.  Here is our final data...

Which type of paper airplane flew the farthest?
Thigpin--cardstock 4, construction paper 1, copy paper 4
Rabun--cardstock 3, construction paper 3, copy paper 4
Bryant--cardstock 6, construction paper 1, copy paper 2
