Units in this book include: (1) History of Aerospace; (2) Kinds and Uses of Aircraft; (3) Parts of an Airplane; (4) Why Aircrafts Fly; (5) Weather; (6) Instruments and Navigation; and (7) Airports. Each unit begins with valuable teacher information concerning purpose, major messages, background information, and vocabulary words. Activities in each unit are organized by topic. A summary at the beginning of each topic lists materials needed, grade levels, and subject areas for each activity. Teacher resource sheets and student handout sheets are located at the end of each unit. A teacher resource section is provided. This section includes the glossary, the Fantastic Flight Dictionary, a resource speakers' guide, a list of aviation and space books, and sources for free or inexpensive teaching aids. (PR)
