Each of the segments examines passenger, military and space aircrafts.

Included in the lesson package is:

- The teacher version of the PowerPoint

- Inquiry WebQuest
- 5 videos embedded into the PowerPoint
- Student lesson handout

In order, the lesson covers:
- The history of flight: Web Quest
- A brief history of flight
- Today’s aircrafts
- The future of air travel

The student version of the PowerPoint contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
