In this unit of study the students will learn many things including these outcomes:

6–6 Construct devices that move through air,
and identify adaptations for controlling


Specific Learner Expectations
Students will:

1. Conduct tests of a model parachute design,
and identify design changes to improve the
effectiveness of the design.

2. Describe the design of a hot-air balloon and
the principles by which its rising and falling
are controlled.

3. Conduct tests of glider designs; and modify a
design so that a glider will go further, stay up
longer or fly in a desired way; e.g., fly in a
loop, turn to the right.

4. Recognize the importance of stability and
control to aircraft flight; and design, construct
and test control surfaces.

5. Apply appropriate vocabulary in referring to
control surfaces and major components of an
aircraft. This vocabulary should include:
wing, fuselage, vertical and horizontal
stabilizers, elevators, ailerons, rudder.

6. Construct and test propellers and other
devices for propelling a model aircraft.

7. Describe differences in design between
aircraft and spacecraft, and identify reasons
for the design differences.
