Science - Gr. 6.A - Air and Aerodynamics

Children's literature connecting to Alberta Education science curriculum. Overview from Alberta Education:Students explore the characteristics of air and the interaction between moving air and solids. They learn that air is a compressible fluid, that it is composed of many gases, and that moving air can support solid materials in sustained flight. By studying birds and airplanes, they learn a variety of adaptations and designs that make flight possible...

The science of flight and aerodynamics: Introduces students to the science of flight and aerodynamics. Students now learn about lift, gravity, thrust and drag -- the four forces that make it possible for an airplane to fly. Our two hosts also examine Bernoulli's principle, Newton's Third Law of Motion, the Angle of Attack, natural and man-made objects that use airfoils and how a pilot controls the airplane. Students learn about the history of flight in Canada.

On November 19, 1916, at 8:25 a.m., Ruth Law took off on a flight that aviation experts thought was doomed. She set off to fly nonstop from Chicago to New York City. Sitting at the controls of her small bi-plane, exposed to the elements, Law battled fierce winds and numbing cold. When her engine ran out of fuel, she glided for two miles and landed at Hornell, New York. Even though she fell short of her goal, she had broken the existing cross-country distance record...
