Description

This lesson package on How Living Things Fly begins by looking at the Characteristics of flying birds including how they produce lift and thrust and are able to fly by reducing drag and weight. It ends by examining Gliding and Parachuting as well as other flying animals.

The package contains diagrams, examples and explanations. It includes the lesson (student and teacher versions of the PowerPoint), a collaborate challenge activity, 6 embedded videos and a student lesson handout as a word document which follows the PowerPoint.

Included in the lesson package is:

- The teacher version of the PowerPoint

- The student version of the PowerPoint

- A collaborate challenge activity

- 6 videos embedded into the PowerPoint

- Student lesson handout

In order, the lesson covers:

- Characteristics of flying birds

--Wings to produce lift

--Powerful flight muscles to generate forward motion

--Aerodynamic body reduces drag

--Very light bones with air sacs reduces weight

- Gliding and Parachuting

- Other flying animals

Buyer Comments:

- "Love the videos included in this PowerPoint. I will be purchasing another PowerPoint in the near future. Thanks"

- "This resource is a great addition to my Flight unit."

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The student version of the PowerPoint contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.

Within my complete Flight Unit you can find the following lesson packages:

Lesson 1 - The History and Future of Flight

Lesson 2 - How Planes and Other Aircraft Fly

Lesson 3 - Improving Flight

Lesson 4 - How Living Things Fly

Lesson 5 - The Properties of Air

Lesson 6 - The Environmental and Social Effects of Airlines

Standards

NGSSMS-LS4-4
Construct an explanation based on evidence that describes how genetic variations of traits in a population increase some individuals’ probability of surviving and reproducing in a specific environment. Emphasis is on using simple probability statements and proportional reasoning to construct explanations.
NGSSMS-PS2-2
Plan an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object’s motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and the mass of the object. Emphasis is on balanced (Newton’s First Law) and unbalanced forces in a system, qualitative comparisons of forces, mass and changes in motion (Newton’s Second Law), frame of reference, and specification of units. Assessment is limited to forces and changes in motion in one-dimension in an inertial reference frame, and to change in one variable at a time. Assessment does not include the use of trigonometry.
