The Wright Brothers

This week we learned about the Wright Brothers. Orville and Wilbur Wright made the first motorized airplane. The went to Kitty Hawk, North Carolina to test their plan that only flew for 12 seconds. The kept modifying their design though and eventually created a plan that could go long distances. They even flew over the Statue of Liberty and the Eiffel Tower. We tried to be the Wright Brother in our class and made paper airplanes. After each flying contest, we would modify our design to see if we could get it to go farther! One day we had Mrs. Laura in our class and hers went really far. We also had Mr. Shawn one day and his went really far as well. The kids got some good plane making tips from them!
