'H" is for Helicopter

Meet Heather Helicopter,
A very funny name.
But that’s what we call Heather-
Of helicopter fame.

Heather watches choppers fly—
Their blades spin ’round and ’round.
She likes to see them take off,
Then land back on the ground.

She wants to be a pilot,
Away up in the sky.
But ’til she gets her license,
She’ll make toy choppers fly!

How does Heather's helicopter fly?

As the helicopter drops through the air, the air pushes against and around the paper propeller blades. That makes the helicopter spin. Placing a paper clip on the helicopter adds weight to make its flight more stable. Try flying your paper helicopter without a paper clip, and see what happens.
