The Physics of Flight

This The Physics of Flight lesson plan also includes:

Three activities allow young flight engineers to understand the 4 principles of flight (weight, lift, thrust, and drag), to construct a glider, and to create a propeller. Multicultural history and literature are integrated by reading Laurence Yep's Newbery-winning novel Dragonwings. Exhaustive information about the science of flight, Chinese immigration at the turn of the 20th century, and the Wright Brothers requires time to digest. A nicely integrated set of activities.
