For each group of 2–4 students:

Groups should have access to the following shared materials:

  • Assortment of paper, e.g. tissue paper, printer paper, notebook paper, construction paper, cardstock, cardboard
  • Paperclips
  • A safe, high place from which to drop the paper helicopters. For example, you could have the students stand on a chair or choose a balcony with a safe railing.
