The Paper Test
Penny Angelo

Ms. Morgan led her 5th-grade students through a paper investigation lab. To practice the scientific method, students hypothesized about the distance a piece of paper could travel when it was manipulated into different shapes. From paper balls, to paper airplanes, students threw their designs to see which shape traveled the farthest. They diligently collected their data and were surprised to learn that tightly wadded paper balls outperformed the paper airplanes! Ultimately, students learned to make evidence-based claims, and Ms. Morgan provided a great opportunity to apply the scientific method in a practical and fun way!
