“Transportation Project” Pre-KChangchun American International School March 1- 8, 2011
An Airplane Trip to CAISDuring group time, we were introduced of differentways of travelling up in the air. We were givenpuzzled pieces to make an airplane. We’re going to make a cool airplane.
The following day, we were given strips papers tocover a balloon.We let them dry first, and then painted them with ourfavorite colors.
Then when it was all dried up, we put our hot airballoon to flying. (08.03.2011) “We decided to fly around CAIS.”
Vladut brought something to school one day. We were all amazed how itflies up in the air.“Hey look Ms. Jai, I show how to fly this”Ooopss, it got stuck.So we practice flying our toy helicopter. The children figured it how to fly Then roll it back and through with your hands. Then throw up it in the air. It was a lovely afternoon.
What We Know about Air TransportationA group discussion that took place on March 07, 2011 “It flies in the sky.” “People ride in them.” “Daddy rides in them to Romania.” “There is a toilet inside the airplane.” “I can sleep in the airplane.”
How does an airplane and helicopter fly? How does a hot air balloon fly? MJ: ‘Tell me about airplane.’ ‘How do they fly?’Vladut: “They have wings to fly.” (Pointing to the picture) Natalie: “They want to fly.” Lara: “They go the sky.” Tian: “I haven’t ridden a plane.” Leander: “They wooosh.” MJ: “How high do you think airplane fly?” Vladut: “Up up in the sky” Natalie: “As high as the tree” Marianne: “But it can fall down” MJ: “Fall down? What happens when the airplane fall down?” Dan: “It’s kaput.” Marianne: “People can get Ouchy.”
Constructing Airplanes with Wood The children were offered different sizes of wooden craft sticks, a variety colored paper shapes, and glue to construct an airplane. Constructing the wooden planes requiredcreativity and problem solving. Some of the children decided that masking tape would help them construct their airplanes better than the glue.
