Ornithopter Guide for Teachers

   
   
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.
