BoomerangAdd to list Details
Learners trace, cut out and fly a boomerang, outdoors or in a large indoor space.
Hoop GliderAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners engineer a flying glider using paper hoops and a drinking straw.
Build a Bug
In this activity (on page 2 of the PDF), learners use art supplies to build models of insects, both real or imagined.
In this activity, learners play bingo to learn about the diversity of birds. This game includes a warm-up lesson and "Full Flight" version.
My InsectAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners use information gathered from a variety of sources to design and make their own insect.
In this activity, learners construct a paper glider to experiment with aerodynamic forces.
Control a Bird’s Flight
In this engineering design challenge, learners make a bird and then control its flight with attached strings.
Going Buggy: Three Body Parts
In this fun snack and craft activity, young learners make "Ants on a Log" and their own model of an insect. The purpose is to learn the three main insect body parts—head, thorax and abdomen.
Origami Flying Disk
In this three-part activity, learners use paper to explore Bernoulli's Principle — fast-moving air has lower pressure than non-moving air.
In this activity, learners explore the properties of paper by constructing and modifying paper airplanes.
It's All About Birds
In this activity, learners create their own bird species using arts and crafts materials. The bird call recordings are not online so the introduction activity can't be done, but everything else can.
GliderAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners construct paper airplanes that twist and turn.
Ladybug SpotsAdd to list Details
In this art/science/math activity, young learners are introduced to the concept of symmetry in nature.
Bernoulli Brain TeasersAdd to list Details
In this activity related to flight, learners conduct two simple tests to explore how lift works.
Squeeze the StreamAdd to list Details
In this activity related to flight, learners build a tiny stream channel to investigate how fluids (air and water) change speed as they flow between and around objects.
Minibeast ModelsAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners create models of bugs. Learners use household materials like plastic cups and straws to create models of bugs like centipedes and spiders.
