Paper Airplane Learning!
- Stand in two lines facing each other.
- No flying until I say "go".
- Everyone picks up an airplane.
- Everyone fills out the place value chart with the number on the plane.
- Get ready to fly it again.
- Repeat. (We did it 7 times.)
- No paper airplanes allowed except when I (teacher) say. (That was so I won't have paper airplanes everywhere after today and paper airplanes are not allowed in our school unless the teacher is using them for teaching purposes.)
We had a BLAST! We stayed out of our room and we practiced our place value. Who knew paper airplanes could be educational?
Here are the instructions for folding a very simple paper airplane.
This is the recording sheet we used.

My brain is just a going with all the other subjects you could do this with: contractions, compound words, fractions, number sentences, spelling or sight words, antonyms, synonyms, homophones, blends, just to name a few. You wouldn't even need a fancy recording sheet, just a piece of paper with numbers to record your answers. You can even do it in your room, just line up on opposite sides of the room and fly away.
So if you ever get kicked out of your room and need a fun learning activity, here's one you could try. I know my kiddos want to do it again and again and again.Thanks for stopping by!
