We read a delightful book about Amelia meeting Eleanor Roosevelt. It shares the story of how they went for a flight together!
We used Cobb Digital Library to research Amelia's life. The kids used the information to complete a Timeline of the major events in her life.
We watched a short video about what it's like to be a pilot.
The kids used their convergent thinking skills to solve a Cryptogram with a coded message about Amelia. They loved cracking the code!
Later on, we watched an episode of Reading Rainbow with all sorts of famous women fliers, including Bessie Coleman.
At the end of the day, we played a creative thinking game, "What Might This Be?" The kids love rolling the die, spinning the spinner and thinking of ideas!
Until next time,
