This week we’re beginning The Glorious Flight : Across the Channel with Louis Bleriot by Alice and Martin Provensen. Elliot is so excited about this one! We’ll be learning a lot about airplanes and flight and reading about others who were famous for flying, such as the Wright Brothers, Amelia Earhart, and Harriet Quimby (also flew over the English Channel). We’ll also learn a bit more about France as well as England and the English Channel. We will also touch on Roman Numerals a bit, since they are used in the book on the names of Louis’ airplanes.
We placed Louis right on the English Channel, right above our Madeline disk on France.
