videos and or pictures on early flight
Hi everybody,
I wouldn ´t have thought to ask here untill I saw a wonderful worksheet on the history of flight in the recent contibutions yesterday. (by; OL1N3)
Every year, our school has a week long project of ´experimental learning ´. They mix up all the classes  and create four groups. Each group, mixed in age from 7 to 12, learns about a subject thru games, plays, and experiments. It is great fun but a looooot of work for the teachers. The subject of my group is "flight" (or more precisely, air transport). My first workshop will be about ´bloopers ´ in early flight...the period where people would run around flapping giant wings believing it would make them fly....or make funny contraptions hoping for lift off....I already found some material (a few videos)  but not nearly enough.....
If any of you happen to have videos or pictures on this subject I would be soooo grateful!
My PM doesn ´t work but you can contact me thru my email ( ´contact ´ under the avatar)
for now i ´ll get back to sewing five more amelia earhart caps, making another example of a water rocket and drill thru 50 wine corks, glue together a hot air balloon, make myself some giant bat wings and read up on the brothers Wright......
