It’s a bird, It’s a plane, It’s Amelia Earhart!

on September 11, 2012

This week we are learning about the Great Amelia Earhart! We are reading a story titled, “Amelia and Elanor go for a Ride.”  We are discussing the similarities and differences between these two characters. Also, we are learning about several genres such as; nonfiction, historical fiction, biographies, and auto-biographies. 

Later this week, we are going to tie Social Studies into our readings by re-tracking Amelia’s final journey in the sky.  We are going to map out her route and try to piece together the mysterious puzzle that was never solved.  What exactly happened to Amelia?  Students are going to research, brainstorm, investigate, and gather information to predict and draw conclusions of the courageous pilot. 

Feel free to make comments and give us any information you have on Amelia Earhart!
