Amelia Earhart Learning Packet.
Civil Air Patrol, Maxwell AFB, AL.
The feats of individuals who have made history in the aerospace world are often misunderstood and soon ignored or forgotten after the first notoriety has been achieved. Amelia Earhart was selected as the subject for this learning packet because of her brilliant accomplishments on the world of flight, a persistent desire to determine what really did happen to her near the end of her famous flight, and because of the timeliness of the role of women in the U.S. today. The packet on Amelia Earhart provides information in narrative form, and students experience reinforcement of their knowledge as they compare the various task cards and study the accompanying posters. The packet includes art work and a booklet to assist the teacher. It includes a recommended teaching method and a short text that covers Amelia's life. Also, it contains a materials list, test and test key, student record sheet, student task cards (n=18), suggestions for evaluating student activities, an aerospace education achievement award, and sheets of reproducible art.
