We started our unit about Amelia Earhart with a fun book, Amelia Earhart-More Than a Flier. The kids enjoyed the first two chapters learning many amazing things about Amelia's early life. We'll be starting a timeline next time, so we can add important events in Amelia's life and in the world.
We worked on some convergent thinking with a logic puzzle about Amelia's sleds. The kids used the clues to determine the order of the sleds. We'll extend this learning next time.
We had fun building some mini planes for the kids to fly. Check out the video in CTLS parent of our First Grade Fliers!
The kids "WOWED" me with their amazing creativity in their "Unique Ideas". I can't believe the variety and originality of things they created! Incredible work!
Can't wait to see these kids again on September 13th!
Until next time,
