The Glorious Flight
B also demonstrated how airplane wings provide lift.
The next day we continued our airplane study by talking about the parts of an airplane and learning the pilot alphabet. I coached K to greet Daddy with a "hi" in code when he came home, but on her own she exclaimed (laboriously) "Hotel India, Delta Alpha Delta Delta Yankee!" We also enjoyed a game of airplane Go Fish from Homeschool Share.
Finally, K dictated a list of different types of transportation and we finished our unit with this youtube video of the crossing of the channel in a replica of the Bleriot XI.
