    1. 1. Laura Perry <br />EDUG 522 – Section 2<br />Summer I - 2011<br />
    2. 2. Where are you going? How will you get there?<br />
    3. 3. “Let’s read and see if we can come up with a definition for what transportation is after we are finished.”<br />
    4. 4. What is transportation?Write student responses down here:<br />
    5. 5. What is transportation?<br />The moving of something from one place to another; through the air, in the water, and across the land.<br />
    6. 6. airplane<br />Sorting into Groups – Part 1<br />Pass out either a vocabulary or picture cards to each student. <br />Optional: Play music <br /> Tell students to find their partner by finding someone with the matching card. <br />
    7. 7. Sorting into Groups – Part 2<br />Students will then as partners find the area marked off in the room for their transportation category.<br />Optional: Play music<br /><ul><li>Air

    15. 15. Hands-On Activity #3 Students will make a life-saver/gum car. <br />
    16. 16. Further Details about Sorting Vehicles<br />Vehicles can be sorted into groups by their purpose. In the following slides we will see several vehicles in each of the 3 main categories. <br />
    17. 17. Air Vehicles<br />Airplane<br />Space shuttle<br />Helicopter<br />Jet plane<br />Hot-air balloon<br />
    18. 18. Match the Vocabulary Words with the Pictures<br />Hot air balloonSpace shuttleAirplaneHelicopterJet <br />
    19. 19. Air Vehicles and their Purposes<br />A hot air balloon is a type of aircraftthat remains aloft due to its buoyancy. It travels by moving with the wind. <br />A helicopter is an aircraft without wings that obtains its lift from the rotation of overhead blades <br />An airplane is a winged vehicle capable of flight<br />A jet is a large airplane that is moved by jet propulsion <br />A space shuttle is a large aircraft designed to transport astronauts between Earth and an orbiting space station <br />

    24. 24. Water Vehicles and their Purposes (cont.)<br />A tugboat is a small boat that pulls a larger boat from one<br />place to another in the water.<br />A submarine is an underwater boat that takes people from <br />one place to another and can’t be seen from above the water.<br />
