A tried and tested project for the flight unit. This project is designed to allow students to familiarize themselves with a pioneer in aviation. Students have a list of aviation pioneers that they can choose from and they are provided with guided/reflection questions that they can use to guide their research. I have incorporated "Growth Mindset" into this project since students will have to demonstrate/infer how their pioneer in aviation has demonstrated a Growth Mindset. A rubric and a step-by-step bibliography page is also provided to help students better refine their research skills.
At the end of this project I get students to present. I am always surprised by how well their presentations go and how complete their projects are.
