Tuesday’s Toolbox

Tuesday's Toolbox button

We just finished a unit study on the Wright brothers and I stumbled across this site. In addition to providing a brief biography on the Wrights, as well as activities, a bibliography and glossary, the site links to a number of animated demonstrations, and even a few video clips prepared by NASA, which explain pitch, yaw, roll, camber and angle of attack. A few of the links on the site are no longer good, so be sure to check it out ahead of time.

  1. Sounds like a great site to try, especially the videos showing the concepts of flight rather than just telling about it. We did a large unit on the History of Flight in 2003 and then went to the Centennial of Flight at Kitty Hawk. It was an incredible experience.

  2. Hi Susan,
    I just can't seem to get my act together for this anymore. Sorry!

    Thanks for hosting it, though. It's been fun, and it's a wonderful idea.

  3. Annie Kate-
    No sweat! I'm going to retire the meme and just continue it as a feature. Anyone with a contribution can just leave a comment.
