Website Purpose & Publisher Information
My name is Fitri Norul-Hisham, I am a 6th grader in Holman Middle School. The reason I made this website was to show other Holman 6th graders about the Wright Brothers. We have been learning about non-fiction text structures and this assignment shows our teacher, Mr. McCormack our ability of making an accurate, well-cited, and professional, non-fiction website.
A Successful Take-Off in Kitty Hawk!
On top of a coastal dune nearby Kitty Hawk, North Carolina on December 17, 1903, Wilbur and Orville Wright accomplished one of mankind's earliest dreams; they soared through the sky! On April 17, 1867, the first brother, Wilbur Wright was born in Millville, Indiana. In addition to the Wright family, Orville, the second brother of the genius duo was born on August 19, 1871 in Dayton, Ohio. Even though neither of the brothers never went to college, they both completed spectacular achievements, for instance, the first human beings to take off successfully on a plane.
Cause and Effect Paragraph
The Toy Chopper That Started It All
If it wasn't their bishop father, Milton Wright, they would never had ever found an interest in aviation. They received a toy helicopter from their father as a gift, the gift that started it all. Due to the helicopter, the brothers never got married since they were so devoted in their work. Because of their father, they would be unmarried and be prosperous on flying the first airplane for a record of 59 seconds at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. Lastly, if modern aviation wasn't introduced to the brothers, they wouldn't have the fame and fortune they had. So it was all the toy chopper that started it all.
