Da Vinci - Artist, Scientist or Engineer?

Anatomy of a Chicken Wing!

In Mrs Nicholson's "Da Vinci - Artist, Scientist or Engineer?" class students followed in 

Da Vinci's footsteps and spent some time investigating the anatomy of flight. 

 

The students dissected a chicken wing and looked at the muscle and bone structure within, relating this to the function of flight. Students then drew their findings into their codex much like Da Vinci would have done in the past.
