Have you ever read any of the Magic Tree House series books by Mary Pope Osborn?
There are 52 chapter books in all and most, if not all of them, can be checked out at your local library. We’ve purchased many of them because they’re that good. Part of what I love about these adventurous books is their titles….Pirates Past Noon, Vacation Under the Volcano, Tonight on the Titanic, Christmas in Camelot, Carnival at Candlelight, and High Time for Heroes. Don’t those just grab you? Each book follows the amazing adventures of siblings, Jack and Annie, who travel through time to different cultures and times in history. This series is a favorite of ours, as we’ve already read the first several books. These books are geared for children between the ages of about 5 to 11 years old.

Design Thinking Project:  Scientists make a "flying carpet"
Short URL:  http://bit.ly/lessson19K

The concept seems basic, but with an easily movable thing like a sheet of plastic, the execution is tough. As the air moves along the carpet's length, it can bend and deform the plastic, causing the whole thing to crash. The engineers had to get the malleable substance to keep its flatness even while air flowed turbulently under it.

Design Thinking Project:
High Seas Adventure

Visit the site: Short URL:  http://bit.ly/wdwlesson20C  

or eMail to:    Pirates@nationalgeographic.com

Students can learn about pirates and where they lived. Another option is to become a pirate by going on the High Seas Adventure at the site. Through this interactive experience, students choose pirate names for themselves and their ships, then sail on to discover information about life aboard pirating vessels. Fictional narratives based on authentic pirate records intrigue explorers as they are called on to answer questions in the tales with further investigation.

Who runs the ship?
