Demonstration Aids for Aviation Education. [Volume II].
Williams, Debbie; Hickson, Carol
This series consists of four packets containing simple, concrete activities for students in the upper elementary grades. The purpose of the series is to illustrate certain principles related to various concepts of aviation and space. Each packet forms a coherent program of instruction on a single topic: (1) non-powered flight; (2) aerospace and the environment; (3) space exploration; and (4) aerospace communications. Most of the activity tasks are introduced with questions. Students then follow the activity instructions to find a solution to each question. This kind of student involvement may then lead to other related questions generated by the teacher, other students, or those suggested on the activity cards. Most activities utilize materials readily available from any given community and can be completed in the classroom. Others may require equipment from a science resource center or a local junior/senior high school. All activities can be adapted to meet the needs of varied teaching situations and different grade levels. (JN)
