Wellington Elementary Students Conduct Field Tests With Model Airplanes

Rosanne Tatti’s third-grade class at Wellington Elementary School recently learned about “why scientists use models” during a science lesson. The class made model airplanes, then made hypotheses as to what would happen if they flew the planes, measured the distance they flew, then added a paper clip to the plane and discovered what kind of an effect it had in the distance the plane flew. Tatti often utilizes hands-on-learning when teaching lessons.
