wright brothers

 

The first day I looked at Wonderopolis, there was great information about the Wright Brothers and the First Flight.

I was immediately hooked!

Being a former 4th grade teacher, that was one of my favorite things to teach in North Carolina Social Studies.

I even used the Wright Brothers as a topic for a big research project in a graduate class I took ....

I am not sure why I am so interested in the Wright Brothers ...

It could be that I slid down the sand dunes at Kill Devil Hills when I was 3 and 4 ...

It could be due to reading stories, books, and primary source materials about the Wright Brothers ...

I think there are so many interesting stories surrounding the brothers and their accomplishments ...

I can't help but think about the Wright Brothers as I look forward to attending the Antares Launch next week ...

One of the brothers was on the commitee that eventually became NASA ...

Think of all the changes he saw in his lifetime ...

Think of all the stories ...

Stories are much easier to remember than just facts ...

That is what my focus will be on next week ...

Finding and telling stories ...
