CNET’s Road Trip 2013 stopped in Dayton, Ohio today. Today’s stop focused on the Wright brothers. One of the resources shared by CNET was the National Park Service’s timeline of the Wright brothers. That timeline is part of a larger timeline about inventions and innovation in the United States.
After looking at the National Park Service’s timeline of the Wright brothers I looked for some more resources about the history of aviation. Scholastic offers a small set of activities for students to complete to learn about the Wright brothers, Amelia Earhart, and NASA missions.
You can find plenty of videos about aviation on YouTube. This is one playlist that you might find appropriate for your lessons. The first video in the playlist is short and direct which is what makes it my first choice for classroom use.
