Airplanes from Then to Now (Sequence Developments in Technology) By Rachel Grack Cover Image


The technological history of airplanes is brought to life with photo-driven design, clear text, and an integrated timeline, making this an excellent resource for elementary students.

Bird envy drove aviation history. We studied bird wings to understand flight and made gliders. Then the Wright Brothers said, "Let's add an engine!" and we left birds in the dust. Since then, we've flown faster, better, and bigger. What will happen next? Can Boeing or Airbus bring us hypersonic passenger jets? Would you ride in a self-flying taxi drone?

Engaging photographs and a running timeline illustrate important developments in aviation history to support STEAM and history curriculum about inventions. A table of contents, glossary, further resources, and an index are included.
