Our students have enthusiastically worked cooperatively to create a Wright Brother's Journal. In that journal, the children wrote about their first flights as passengers, used a Venn Diagram to compare riding in a plane and car, designed a timeline that included important dates in the Wright Brother's lives, created their own poetry, and translated all their research findings into a computer interactive game about the Wright Brothers. We hope you enjoy our work as much as we enjoyed doing it!

On December 17, we celebrated the day by dressing up as people that lived during the early 1900s and had two guest speakers talk to us about aviation.
