fun with paper planes..

so we had another english session on wednesday. this time round we wanted to do something fun which involves us going out of the class room. so we came up with this whole teaching the kids a little bit about physics (yeah hehe fun physics) and a little bit of maths (hehe very little) and seeing if the kids can observe and recall and also to follow instructions.

first of all we started with me telling the kids a little bit about the history of flight. some characteristics of things that can fly and also i asked the kids what other things that they can think off which displayed those characteristics.

then we asked the kids to design their own paper planes. each group must come up with a plane that can fly the furthest and also glide the longest in the air. for this we went to the hall. there were 4 groups in all. all with names having something to do with flying.

so the kids were trying out their designs and all. some of them were trying out their airplanes and others were asking the abang kakak for some help. after each throw, the kids calculated the average distance and the average time. we had a winner for each category.

afterwards, we all had a sit down and i showed the kids how to make some complicated paper planes from this big book of paper airplanes which i bought at borders. hehe it was fun. i think i had more fun than the kids did. hehe still a little kid at heart eh..
