Jo is trapped at the top of a high tower and the only way out is to jump. Help Jo build a “helicopter” to reach the ground slowly and safely.
Build a "helicopter" that falls slowly and beautifully to the ground.
This is a fun and easy activity that can be done by anyone that can use a pair of scissors.
The end result is surprisingly beautiful to watch and satisfying to make.
The worksheet is self-contained on one sheet of paper minimising the amount of printing required. Instructions are included on the worksheet.
- Colour pencils to decorate
Follow up questions:
- How could you make the helicopter fall slower to the ground?
- Where in nature have you seen a similar spiralling object?
