Standard

The other two ladies we studied were Amelia Earhart and Margaret Knight.  Amelia Earhart was the first woman to cross the Atlantic in an airplane, so we made and flew paper airplanes.  Margaret Knight was an inventor who patented the square bottom paper bag, so we made kites from paper lunch bags.
