“Why do I include “real” people in my unit studies? Whether they are scientists, politicians, inventors, historians, explorers, artists, or historical figures, they help your children see the topic in terms that they can relate to; “real people who actually lived,” as our kids would say. Always begin with the childhood of the people who are connected to a unit study when you can, it gives your children something that they can picture so well.”
“Just the name Amelia Earhart evokes a kind of mystery for me. This … flyer lived in an age when it was quite daring for a woman to be so bold. She led quite an interesting life with such a mysterious end that even today questions are unanswered . . . Included are video online links to incorporate visual learning—leave your speakers on so that all the sights and sounds can be enjoyed! I was fascinated to watch these “peeks” into the past in the form of short 4-9 minute film that introduced me to the world of early flight: Amelia’s world. I can envision using this study to enhance a study of the early 20th century or a deeper science unit on flight, atmosphere, or weather!”

“We used this study in our eclectic homeschool with my children from ages 3 to 13 . . . The study is perfect for families who homeschool with various ages and types of learners. My children especially enjoyed using the library books recommended, and we made our own airplanes and discussed aerodynamics and had a great time coloring and “tweaking” the planes. My younger son was most enthusiastic about finding the locations mentioned in the atlas . . . I would definitely recommend this study resource to everyone I know. It can easily be adapted to fit any homeschoolers’ needs. The study is a usable, economy-friendly resource filled with lots of information and details, and in a nicely organized manner.”

“Learning about Amelia’s life, her planes, and her most famous flight are the lessons one would expect in a unit study focused on Earhart, but Amanda Bennett goes one step further. This unit study focuses on Amelia Earhart’s character. By examining her early life and education, and by focusing on the particular virtues that enabled her to pursue her unusual goals, Bennett allows students to home in on specific ways in which they can emulate Earhart, should they so choose. It is one thing to have a hero; it is quite another thing to have the concrete means at one’s disposal to consciously imitate that hero. Parents who are looking for something entertaining and lighthearted to tide them over between the fall and spring semesters, though, shouldn’t shy away from this unit study for fear that it focuses overmuch on serious subjects like virtue and character. Engaging and enjoyable activities abound on every page . . . I can’t wait to see what Amanda Bennett has up next in the series!”
