Now that we know the best places to find sources, let’s see if we can put this knowledge in to action. My friend Zoe is doing a project on the Wright Brothers. She can tell you more about them. Click through the slideshow below to learn about Zoe’s project.

Researching the Wright Brothers

Zoe holding a tablet

Mr. Lexington’s assigned a research project in class. We have to choose a historical figure who made a major impact on the world. I chose the Wright Brothers.

Orville and Wilbur Wright were brothers who lived in North Carolina more than 100 years ago. They invented and flew the world’s first successful airplane in 1903.

Mr. Lexington says that I should use the resources he told us about to find sources for my project. Can you help me out with that?

Let’s see if we can help Zoe find sources. I’ll give you a website link, and then you search for material about the Wright Brothers. Easy, right? Let’s give it a try!
