Summary
In 1903 Wilbur and Orville Wright completed the first successful flight of a heavier-than-air craft, at once realizing the centuries-old dream of human flight and paving the way for generations of explorers to come. With clear text and illustrated timelines, this book takes students through the events leading up to that historical moment and the milestones that have since followed, while informative sidebars and clear diagrams explore developments in flight in more detail. A Mix and Match activity encourages students to engage with the text, and a curated list of websites offer suggestions for further investigation
