Make 2 paper airplanes that are exactly the same. Ahead of time, tape a penny inside one of the airplanes. Tell the children you are going to demonstrate how well the airplanes fly. Fly the first plane (without the penny). Talk about how far and graceful it flies. Then fly the second airplane with the penny taped inside of it. Play it up and act like you don’t know what is wrong. They both look the same – why aren’t they flying the same? Have the children examine both of the planes and try flying them until they find the penny.
