Who can design a paper airplane that flies the farthest outside with the same weight paper.


1-same weighted paper (can play trying all different weights of paper but must be of equal weight during a single race)
2-tape measure


Design a paper airplane - this might take some research. Each player creates the same plane and secretly initials it.


Set up a line that will be used to stand on as the plane is launched. Each player has to figure out how to launch it in the best manner.


After each player throws his/her paper airplane, the distance from the start line to the tip of the airplane is measured.


The one with the longest distance from the starting line wins.


Variations: Each player can try and launch another player's plane. Try varying weights of paper and predict how far the planes will travel - The one with the most correct predictions wins.
