Ok so what are we doing? A LOT!!! haha But really, below you will find what we are using for this study along with some fun activities.
"The Wright Brothers" lapbook by confessions of a homeschooler is the starting point. This is the bulk of our writing, reading, history, science and even some art. You can find the Unit Study here: The Wright Brothers Unit Study
Preparing for the week!
Kids starting their lapbook!
"The Wright Brothers" by Mike Venezia is the book we read to go along with the lapbook.
We watched a "Magic School Bus" Episode called "Taking Flight" that talks about what is needed for the plane to fly.
We will be watching a few episodes of "How its made" that go over parts of the plane as well as maybe watching a "Myth Busters" episode (after I preview it to make sure its ok for the their age).
Along with all the above we will of course have to make some paper airplanes and fly them outside! Something I came across that I hope to have the kids do in the next few years is take a free flight with the "Young Eagles" program. If you have kids ages 8-17 look to see if its offered in your area! I'm going to wait to do it until both of mine are old enough but it looks like a lot of fun!
Isaiah 6:8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”
