108 Years of Flight - Document and Videos

Saturday marked the 108th anniversary of the Wright brothers' first flight. The National Archives marked the anniversary by publishing the iconic image of their plane in flight.

After looking at the picture and related materials on the National Archives website I jumped over to FedFlix where I found a four part video series about the Wright brothers. The video series was released by the Department of Defense in 1970. I've embedded the first video in the series below.

For younger students, Scholastic has a series of free lesson plans and other online resources for teaching about the history of flight.
