The Wright Brothers


Our Wright Brothers lesson plan teaches students all about the Wright Brothers and their accomplishments. Students will be able to speak about the Wright Brothers and what they contributed to flight. They will also build their own paper airplanes.


Our The Wright Brothers lesson plan introduces young students to the Wright Brothers, early flight, and shows how the two men did not give up even after several failed attempts at flight. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner to create paper airplanes, test different designs, and answer questions about it and about the Wright Brothers. Students are also asked to answer true/false questions about the lesson material.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify the Wright Brothers, list their contributions to flight, and recognize that failures can lead to success.
