Planes, Planes, Planes
After our trip to the airport big O wrote about his adventures in his journal.
For O's Journal writing I use Draw and write by handwriting without tears. We already use this program for print practice so he is familiar with the lines.
|O and I read The Glorious Flightby Alice and Martin Provensen.|
We learned the du'a to be recited when mounting a car, airplane, any moving vehicle/animal.
...سبحن الذي سخر لن هذا
For Arabic we learned how to say airplane (طائرة ). Both boys also learned how to say what is this? in Arabic (ما هذا).
The story takes place in France so we located France on our globe and colored the flag/map of France. We discussed which continent France is on.
For the stickers that go in the passport I purchased Flags of the World 96 stickers.
We read The Usborne Book of Science things to make and do(pg 90)
The Usborne Big book of Big Machines
We made some paper airplanes and flew them around the room.
We also watched the Magic School Bus "Takes Flight" here.
After making our paper planes. I made a worksheet for O to graph how far his airplane could fly.
|Apples and grapes in the shape of an airplane for snack||.|
The boys flew their airplanes over a cut out of the city of Paris here.
Note: All these activities were done in the span of two weeks.
