What happens at an airport!? This package is the next-best thing to being there.
And if you are able to arrange for your class to take a field trip to a nearby airport, this package is a great way to prepare them for the experience.
Join Roxy the dog as she tours a medium-sized airport.
This slideshow (in PowerPoint and PDF formats) provides a basic overview that is both entertaining and informative for young learners.
Table of Contents
>Driving to the airport
>The parking lot
>Control tower, terminal building
>Tickets, TSA, flight information
>Baggage claim area
>Officer Carl and the firehouse
>An airliner lands at the airport
>Time to go home
At the end of the main slideshow are vocabulary-list slides with simplified definitions and a photo-slide of an airliner with the basic parts labeled.
Also included in the zip file are:
A separate photo slideshow that shows how to fold two styles of basic paper gliders.
***Printable pages with two regional jet outlines
(overhead view and side view) for labeling and/or coloring.
***A "maze" printable page
("Help the pilot get to his airplane").
***A word search printable puzzle
***Topics for discussion about why we have airports
and why there are different kinds and sizes of airports.
Ideas for drawing or writing activities
in which students imagine visiting a foreign country on an airliner and packing their bags for the trip.
The teaching duration is listed as 90 minutes, but it will take longer if most of the related activities---including the making, decorating and testing of paper gliders---are utilized.
I hope you and your students enjoy this fun, aviation-themed package of materials.
