The Wright Brothers story is incredibly inspirational. This min-unit includes everything you need with reading passages, organizers, flip book, and vocabulary posters.

The Wright Brothers are an extraordinary example of how hard work and determination can lead to great accomplishments. They persevered and are known today as the "Fathers of Modern Aviation."


Famous People Bundle

In this unit, students will learn all about the Wright Brothers:

✔The Wright Brothers

✔Comprehension Questions & Organizers

✔Label the Parts of The Flyer

✔Character Mini-booklet

✔Timeline Activity (Cut-n-sort)

✔Colorful Vocabulary Posters

✔Spotlight on Vocabulary

✔PLUS a 5-Page Flip Book

In this mini-unit there are three main activities:


Introduce the five vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use as a center activity. These posters are excellent to make a colorful bulletin board display in a snap! Shine a spotlight on vocabulary to help students understand and retain the information.


Next, have students read the reading passage where they will meet the Wright Brothers and learn all about their life.

Hands-on Activities:

Students can use the reading passage to complete the comprehension questions, organizers, timeline, label the parts of The Flyer. There is also a character mini-booklet and 5-page Flip Book all about the two brothers. For the flip book, you could have students do one page at each center or station. Lastly, they cut, color, and assemble the booklet. Flip-Up books can be glued or stapled inside their interactive notebooks, file folder, or a 12 x 18 piece of construction paper folded like a book cover. Students could then decorate the cover of the booklet.
