With this activity students will write a personal narrative on what their experiences would have been as a prolific World War I Pilot. After they finish their pilot stories they will then design a logo for their plane.
The Instructions the students will receive are:
You are a pilot who flew in World War I you must write about some of your experiences in the war. You should include information in regards to why you signed up, the great battles you were in, what type of airplane you flew (bomber or fighter), what things you did while you weren’t flying, and what you did after the war.
Note: You should be able to write enough about your story as a World War I Pilot to fill the space below.
Airplanes in World War I often had their pilots’ personal logos on the side to show ownership, but also to help others identify them easily. Now you will design, or sketch, the logo that was on your plane when you flew in World War I.
This resource is uploaded in a word and pdf file so you can make edits as you like, but also have a ready to print version.
This activity is a great companion to the Flyboys movie. I also have a movie guide for the film and a product where I have bundled the two resources at a discounted price.
