I created this smart notebook file to give students and inside look at the “flying” aspect of travelling to various countries around the world. The journey begins with links to youtube videos that give the students simulated experiences related to flying, included is the:
Flight Attendant Safety Message (approx. 4 mins)
Inside view out the window of a plane taking off (approx. 3 minutes)
Inside view out the window of a plane landing (approx. 2 minutes)
Outside View of a plane taking off and landing (approx. 7 minutes)
After the take off, dependent on the country we are headed to , I play the national anthem for that country as the video of taking off comes to an end (both play simultaneously). As the national anthem finishes, I then play the “in flight” entertainment (music video) related to each country. As the music video comes to an end, and we are arriving at our destination, I then play the video of the plane landing. Finally we take out our luggage (file folders with our country studies information in it) and prepare to learn about the new country.
Countries Included are:
I created this file to accompany a unit I purchased from Natalie Lamont here on TpT (http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Natalies-Nook ) called Communities Around the World – A Postcard Writing Unit.
My students love this unit and this interactive smart notebook file just adds that extra specialness!!
To access each video, simply click on the circle beside the description, it will take you directly to youtube where you can expand the view to the entire screen to enjoy the entertainment.
You must have a flash player installed on your computer that will play the youtube videos (which most automatically do) especially if you are accessing this through your school.
