On last year's trip we seemed to spend a lot of time at the airport waiting at the gate -to make sure we start off the trip well, we decided to add an activity here!
IB Global Context: Scientific and Technical Innovation (exploration: adaptation)
The students will get sent a link to the presentation below. It includes information from one of our colleagues, Dennis, a former pilot - as well as the prompt: The plane you are going to fly today may one day also be in a museum. Technology is constantly evolving and adapting and that includes planes! What do you think travel will look like in 30 years time? Students will write their thoughts in their journals.
We think students will get a kick out of seeing these old pictures of Dennis. We will also have them make connections with this presentation when they visit theNational Air and Space Museum in Washington!
What other ways can we kill time while waiting at the gate? I'll bring a few card games, but other ideas would be appreciated :)
