Flapping wing models
called ornithopters can be a great learning activity for students.
Building an ornithopter from instructions is a unique language lesson
that teaches students to read for information and understanding. They'll
also learn math, science, and technology skills through this hands-on
experience. Students can carry out their own inquiry-based experiments
on flapping-wing flight. You can really motivate students by giving
them the challenge of an ornithopter competition.
