Let’s Make Spinning StoryBot Flyers

In the StoryBots Episode “How Do Airplanes Fly?” we found that *spoiler alert* airplanes fly using four forces: thrust, drag, lift, and weight.

Let’s make some spinning flyers that help us understand the magic of flight…also they’re just really fun to throw!

Print

Print out the StoryBots Spinning Flyers Printable. Try printing it on different types of paper to test out different flyers. We tried card stock and regular printer paper in my experiment.

Cut

Cut on the solid lines only. Don’t cut the dotted lines.

Fold

Fold the bottom in and up. Then make sure you fold the wings out in opposite directions.

Take your flyer to a high spot and drop, or just see who can throw it the furthest. How long does it take to land? Can you add paperclips to make it spin more? Can you make it lighter? Ask some more questions and do some investigation yourself!
