Design an interactive map with modes of transportation that actually move across the ocean.
Invite students to investigate maps of North America and Europe. Locate New York City and Paris, France. Find out about various current modes of transportation between the two cities, including times, flight or cruise paths, distances, vehicle weights, and speeds. Locate similar information about Charles Lindbergh's first transatlantic flight.
Once research is complete, distribute poster board and Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils and/or Color Sticks to students. Using colored pencils or color sticks, students draw a map (to scale) showing the two continents and the Atlantic Ocean from New York City to Paris.
Cut small pieces of poster board with Crayola Scissors to make sign posts for the two cities. Attach to the map with a Crayola Washable Glue Stick.
Students make a three-dimensional boat and plane to string from New York to Paris. Cut out the body of an air plane from poster board. Draw the airplane body on each side, then glue on wings cut from poster board. Add a small tab under one wing by gluing two sides of a small piece of poster board to the wing, leaving the middle of the tab pulled away from the wing a bit. Dry. Thread string or yarn through the tab, anchoring the ends to New York and Paris.
To make the boat, fold a small piece of poster board in half and draw each side of a boat. Place string inside the fold, then glue the bottom inside edges together. Be sure to keep string from sticking to glue. Anchor the ends of the string to both cities.
Create fact cards by folding index cards or poster board cut to size. Use Crayola Washable Markers to write topics on the outside of cards and information inside. Glue cards to empty spaces on the map.
