Beginning on Wednesday this week, all grade 3-5 classes have read Flight: the journey of Charles Lindbergh by Robert Burleigh. Classes on Monday and Tuesday next week will also share this amazing biography of courage and determination.
It was good to learn about what made Charles Lindbergh so famous, but also to imagine how difficult it was for him to achieve his dream of being the first to fly solo, non-stop across the Atlantic. We imagined what it was like to try to stay awake for that long, and to not even be able to stand up, or go to the bathroom! Some classes also researched what happened to Charles Lindbergh after his flight across the Atlantic.
