LESSON PLAN | How Things Fly - Activities for Teaching Flight. In this lesson, you'll introduce your students to the four forces of flight--drag, lift, thrust, and weight--through a variety of fun-filled flight experiments. Students will "fly" for short periods and then evaluate factors that might either increase or decrease their "flight" duration.

A lesson plan introduces students to the four elements of flight - drag, lift, thrust, and weight - through fun-filled experiments.
