Aida de Acosta was the first woman to fly an airship that was invented by a man who taught her to fly and pilot this same airship. Aida was only a teenager, but her courage, growth mindset, and chance to try allowed her to be the first woman to fly a motorized aircraft. This book is about gender equality, a perfect read aloud for Women's History Month!
I have created a Guided Reading packet for students to think as they read. This packet contains the geography of France, the best of Reading Comprehension Strategies, and Post Reading Activities that foster the synthesizing of the information offered in this wonderful book written by Margarita Engle.
