AEC students model flying boats

After revising and editing a selection, Flying Boat Airplane, Alternative Education Center (AEC) students designed a paper model of a flying boat airplane. The selection describes the first commercial airplane flight, which was actually a flying boat. Students wrote an essay convincing readers that their own individual design was the best flying boat. Students shared their essays with the whole class. Their essays were then sent to their international learning partners for their partners’ revising and editing activity. This space education-integrated activity is one of AEC's simple class-based activities for its entry to the Aerospace Education Excellence Program this school year.
