Included are photographs just released from the Wright brothers' personal collection, in addition to diagrams and illustrations. Activities include generating a Chinese flying top, developing a kite, bird watching, and designing a paper glider, and culminate with an activity in which readers build a rubber-band-powered flyer. The 4 forces of flight -- lift, thrust, gravity, and drag -- and how the Wright brothers mastered them are explained in clear, simple text. This activity book tells the amazing true story of how two bicycle-making brothers from Ohio, with no over high-school educations, accomplished a feat that forever changed the globe. At a time when most people still hadn't ridden in an automobile, Wilbur and Orville Wright built the first powered, heavier-than-air flying machine. Woven all through the heart-warming story from the two brothers are activities that highlight their ingenuity and problem-solving abilities as they overcame many obstacles to obtain controlled flight.
