Butterflies or Ladies How many butterfly ladies do you see? Now how many are there? Where did the first group go? Did they fly away? How many did they leave? Will they fly away too?
Sheet Music Paris Balloon Post Galop by H. Hermann “Cependant, il fallait trouver le moyen de traverser l’Atlantique en bateau, —à moins de le traverser en ballon, — ce qui eût été fort aventureux, et ce qui, d’ailleurs, n’était pas réalisable. Le Tour Du Monde en Quatre- vingt Jours. Paris, J. Hetzel et cie, 1874 Click music cover to see full booklet Does the word “pourtant” mean the same thing as the word “cependant “? Use the Research Thesaurus reference in Word to find out if these words are the same and then use the Translation to find out the exact meaning of the two words.
Washington, D.C. The U.S. Weather Bureau station at the National Airport. Surface weather being observed at a Weather Bureau instrument panel on which are mounted barometers, thermometers, wind direction and velocity indicators, and other instruments for measuring weather elements. October 1943America from the Great Depression to World War II: Photographs from the FSA-OWI, 1935-1945America from the Great Depression to World War II: Photographs from the FSA-OWI, 1935-1945 The National Weather Service has weather balloons that they use to figure out what the weather will be like for the day. This a picture of the National Weather Bureau Station at National Airport in 1943. The equipment you see is very different than what is available now. Look at this slide show about weather balloons and write down the names of equipment that it mentions. www.nws.noaa.gov/om/educ/radiosnd.rmslide show www.nws.noaa.gov/om/educ/radiosnd.rm
Washington, D.C. The U.S. Weather Bureau station at the National Airport by Fred Driscoll. Oct. 1943. America from the Great Depression to World War II: Photographs from the FSA-OWI, 1935-1945 America from the Great Depression to World War II: Photographs from the FSA-OWI, 1935-1945 After looking at the slide show about weather balloons, use Tables and Clip Art in a Word document to tell what time a weather balloon is let go each day in the United States. You can use clocks and maps and other pictures that help someone who sees your table know about when weather balloons are released.
The weather and flying Birds were symbols of flight so weather vanes such as this one from George Washington’s home at Mount Vernon served not only a decorative, but a functional purpose for farming. They let you know the direction of wind. Church spires often contained weather vanes like the one you see on the next slide.
Plans for the Steeple Building, Weathervane, Company Street, Christiansted, St. Croix County, VI Significance: The Steeple Building (former Lutheran Church of Our lord of Zebaoth) was begun in 1750 and finished in 1753. The tower was begun in 1793 and completed by 1794, although work continued on interior details as late as 1796. James Rodgers, blacksmith, made the wrought iron spire and the weathervane while Christian Gortz made the copper ball, and covered the wooden balls and ornamental finial with copper Built in America http://memory.loc.gov/cgi- bin/query/r?ammem/hh:@field(DOCID+ @lit(VI0118)) -->
Use the dimensions of the Steeple Building given in this document to figure out the perimeter around it. P=2LX2W
About Crows, Blackbirds and Wrens Crows are a common bird that are found in many places in the world. The family of crows include jays, ravens, magpies, rooks and jackdaws. They have 23 calls that they use to communicate. Their songs are not musical. They live in groups called “Murders”. Because crows like to eat corn, wheat and other grains that farmers grow, farmers build scarecrows. Do you know the story of the scarecrow in the Wizard of OZ? What other kinds of creatures were like crows in that story? What other kinds of birds do you know about from reading stories or poems? Have you ever heard the nursery rhyme Sing a Song of Sixpence? What happens in this rhyme? Are there blackbirds and wrens? Blackbirds are smaller birds than crows that also eat the grain of farmers along with insects and weed seeds. Their flocks are called “Colonies”. They have beautiful songs. “Isn’t that a dainty dish to set before a king?” Wrens are common birds in North America and very protective of their nests. Gardeners like them because they eat insects.
In the picture below from the poem Sing a Song of Six Pence, the little girl is giving money to a poor worker. Do you think the girl is rich? Do you think she is showing charity which was encouraged for little children of her time? Who shows charity to the Baudelaire children in The Vile Village? At the end of this version of the poem, the maid gets her nose restored by what kind of bird? How is that ending different than the one you read earlier?
How do centimeters and inches compare? An inch contains 2.54 centimeters. Therefore a wren that is 5.25 inches would be how many centimeters?. (2.54 X 5.25 = 13.3 centimeters) A crow that was 53 cm would be how many inches? (53/2.54=20.8 inches) Bird Sizes from Our Readings How many centimeters was the vulture on Neville’s grandma’s hat if it was 12 inches?
The Leonard Bernstein Collection, ca. 1920-1989 Young People's Concerts Scripts: Young Performers [typescript on blue paper w/ inserts on white paper, emendations in black, blue & red pencil], Bernstein describes parts of the orchestra for Peter and the Wolf Prokofieff’s Peter and the Wolf was written in 1936. In it the flute in the orchestra played the character of a bird and the oboe played a duck. What instruments played Peter and Grandfather?

What kind of songs do children sing? There are many kinds of songs that children sing. Often they are about animals. Listen to this song by clicking on the speaker icon. The singer is named Lura Mae Jumper who is an eight year old who is with her teacher. This song is about a bat and is a traditional Seminole Indian children’s song. Play the song again. Now search the clip art in PowerPoint and find a picture that will illustrate what you think the song is about. You can use musical notes, colors, pictures of bats or anything else that you want to. If you want to use a noise and a picture it is O.K. to do that too. Be creative. You can use the shapes and colors that are in PowerPoint to decorate your slide and really make a picture that is interesting. Chish-hi-you-bung-gay or Bat Song, 1940

A Company History Exercise Use the Smithsonian historical air database to collect data on the different planes created by the different companies that are now Boeing.historical air database Look at the Boeing web site under “About” and “History”. Read its histories. How many companies have become its subsidiaries? Collect data from the Boeing web site on the various models of planes produced by these companies to verify the information you got from the Smithsonian database. Use the Consumer Price Index, 1913-2007 percentage of change data from the Time Almanac 2009 which is on the next slide to figure out the estimated cost of the planes from year to year. After 2007 use the data on the web site for the U.S. Department of Labor. Start your calculations with the $25,000 figure that the Wright Brothers sold their plane to the U. S. War Department. Using Access create a database that lists the plane names, their date, the former company names and an estimated price. Print reports by the individual companies. Convert the database to an Excel spreadsheet. Using the data from the spreadsheet, produce a pie chart that shows the percent of revenue each subsidiary of the company may have produced historically. Make a two page PowerPoint presentation and use this chart to describe how the company grew. http://siris-thesauri.si.edu/ipac20/ipac.jsp?profile=planes#focus
