Product Details

Amelia Earhart was the first woman to fly in a plane across the Atlantic. Four years later, she flew her own plane across the Atlantic solo. She was a smart and determined woman—and especially remarkable for her time.

Children complete a variety of fun, independent activities as they learn about Earhart's many achievements, including taking first lady Eleanor Roosevelt on a nighttime flight above Washington, DC. Activities include:

• Using a coordinate grid and map
• Navigating a maze
• Learning the parts of a plane
• Identifying rhyming words
• Completing a word search
• Identifying things that don't belong, in a silly pictures puzzle

A great activity to celebrate Women's History Month in March, this printable packet about an American hero, will help build reading comprehension skills as well as mapping and graphing skills, teach content-area vocabulary, and foster literacy and language skills.
