How to Make a Paper Plane

For the last week we have been learning about air pressure. Veon wanted to make a paper plane to see what would happen to it with the pressure from different air forces. On Monday we learnt how to make a paper plane. We looked at YouTube tutorials to show us how people present instructions. Olivia, Ella, Shiah, and Kaira have put together a video explaining how to make a basic paper plane. The Hovercrafts (reading group) wrote up the steps for us on Pic Collage. Tomorrow we will try to follow these instructions to make planes to test with different air pressures, like a fan, hair dryer, or air released from a balloon. Cheyne wants to try and make different designs to see which paper plane will fly the longest distance.
Check out our video to see if you can make a paper plane. Please let us know how it goes!

Great instructional video clip girls! Very clear instructions. I like how you tell us with your words and also show us. It makes it very easy for others to copy. It is great to see your persistence even when you are unsure how to do it. I am impressed at how well your planes fly. I look forward to reading about how different air pressure affects the flight of your planes.

Hello Team Maunga
Thanks for sharing your video about making a paper plane.I wonder how many other people will use your video to try and make a paper plane themselves.

HI Olivia and Ella
We thought your video was amazing! We loved watching it. It was funny and informative, and we liked how you used kind words when you needed help. We are going to give it a go, following your instructions. Well done girls!
Kind regards

Thats a great idea. This also made us think about what would happen if we tried flying our planes over a big fan. So we have asked Mrs G to bring hers back in to try it.

We are interested to see who uses our video as well, and to hear how they got on flying them.
