Flight's Contributions to the Study of Earth and Space Sciences

Eleventh graders watch a NASA film about the history of flight. They discuss a quotation by Sir Isaac Newton: "If I have seen further, it is because I have stood on the shoulders of giants." Students choose, or are assigned, the name of a person who contributed to flight research. They perform research about this person, finishing by drawing a picture of the character and constructing a narrative bubble that has the character talking about his or her contributions to flight.
