This week the homework will center on flying activities. The activities are appropriate for K-3, except as noted.
Feel free to copy, cut, and paste the assignments into your own word
processor for sending home (or print this page).
This week the activities relate to flying. Have the children make two lists: one of animals that fly, one of man-made things that fly.
Either give the children or ask them to find a picture of an airplane. Have them write (or dictate) the names of as many parts of the plane as they can.
Interview three people and ask them: What makes an airplane fly? Choose one response and illustrate it.
Superman is a make-believe character who can fly. Write (or dictate) how your life would be different if you could fly.
