Paper Airplane Flight lab

Today we are going to make paper airplanes and fly them around the room and we will do it all in the name of science.  We are going to do a formal lab in hopes of uncovering the prime conditions for flying our airplanes.  To do this we will be in small groups, make a goal, make educated guesses (hypothesis’), control variables and experiment.
