Wright Brothers

We have been learning about the Wright Brothers in kindergarten! We learned that their first plane flew for 12 seconds and went 120 feet. We got with our 3rd grade buddies and tried to run for 12 seconds to see how far we could get (very close to 120 feet) then we ran 120 feet to see how long it took us (the average was 20 seconds). We decided that the first flight did not go very far!

We also worked this week on making paper airplanes. The kids would make one then if it didn't fly very well, they would work to change it. This is how the Wright Brothers invented their plane. They didn't get it right the first time but they kept trying.
