Here’s a bit of inspiration for you! These suggestions will add depth to your child’s love of planes ✈️ .
One of the best ways to help your homeschooler gain knowledge is by following their interests. Because they are already interested. Currently my son is on a plane kick and I’ve been able to build on it!
My Preschoolers Interest of the Week: PLANES!
I requested lots of books from our local library: Picture, Fiction and Non-Fiction books! We read or flip through them together and “go with the flow”. Ari has many questions and we are able to find the answers.
2. Field Trip!
We spent our morning at a small local airport that has a PLAYGROUND!!
Ari had a great time and was able to watch planes: land, take off and refuel! Obviously, from the look on his face, he was ecstatic!
We watch videos about the Wright Brothers:
- Muffin Stories – The Wright Brothers, Orville and Wilbur
- HelloKids # Great Man 09 # Wright Brothers
- Wright Brothers First Flight RARE Footage
Spanish (Foreign Language):
We learned Spanish words that relate to airplanes!
- Airplane: Avion
- Airport: Aeropuerta
- Sky: Cielo
- Clouds: Nubes
- Up: Arriba
- Down: Abajo
Art without guidance. I allow Ari to draw and paint the way HE see’s things
- Airplane drawings & paintings
- Paper Airplanes!
- Discussed Acceleration and Deceleration
- Watched The Magic School Bus Season 2, Episode 9 (Flight)
Remember, this is a very loose lesson plan, meant only to inspire. You can easily customize this to meet your families needs!
That wraps it up! I hope this helps!
Happy Plane Watching!
