Vocabulary Building

     Learning how to build a three piece airplane is a good way to increase students' vocabulary.  They say and learn the importance of airplane flight using words like elevator, vertical stabilizer, and dihedral.
     After that, they learn how to put the airplane together.  It's important to cut and glue the parts carefully and to add the proper amount of weight to the nose for a successful flight.
     I know the workshop has been a success when I hear kids yell out, "Raise the elevators. It'll give your airplane more lift!"
