This lesson plan takes into consideration the 4Cs of Learning and Innovation Skills (critical thinking, communication, collaboration, creativity).

Students watch a teacher-led show. It creates ideas of how warm air rises and how planes move in the air. Students will then watch the Airbus Foundation Discovery Space video to understand how the planes fly. They will then create models of their own aircraft and helicopters using 3D Tinkercad designs or recycled materials.
