Who Really Invented Flight? What a Fight!

Students investigate the controversy over who was the first to complete a powered flight event. The class is divided into two groups and either research the Wright brothers or Alberto Santos-Dumont. Once research is complete, the groups debate the contributions of each inventor and which deserves the title of "First Flight".
