Through the CSI: Flight Adventures Flight School, students will learn the basic physics behind functional aircrafts. By building and testing digital foam aircrafts, students will learn how to create model planes, and which mechanical features affect flight patterns and movements, including pitch, yaw, and roll. Through the game, students will be able to test their planes and learn the physics of flight and the practicality of testing in the scientific method.
In this lesson plan which is adaptable for grades 3-12, students will use BrainPOP resources (including two online games) to explore the properties and physics of flight. This lesson plan is aligned to Common Core State Standards. See more »
