Lesson: Plane Art (Elementary School)

Posted on May 5, 2022 at 2:20 PM by Virginia Smith

In this lesson, students will identify and define four parts of a plane: cockpit, wings, fuselage and tail. Then, they will practice flying their own balsa glider. The activity is Academic Lesson #3 in the Aerospace Connections in Education (ACE) Guide. As part of CAP's ACE Program, all teachers get class sets of education materials to provide them to each student. The-first grade class set is the balsa glider, and teachers will use those in this lesson. Find the Plane Art lesson plan here.
