Finding Resources, Grants, Lessons

from the Federal Government

Probably the most underused source of free resources on the Internet belongs to the federal government. Each branch, limb, twig has information and materials that could be used to create valuable lessons or to make individualization easier.

For example, you are working on an aviation unit. A quick check at the Federal Aviation Administration site reveals:

Teachers Guide to Aviation, Grades 2-6

Aviation Education Curriculum Guides

Aviation Education Materials and Curriculum Publications

Black Wings: African American Pioneer Aviators

Remember the Wright Brothers’ Historic Flight
A fairly complete guide to early aviation, the Wright Brothers and Space

War Eagles Air Museum Coloring Book
Some printable coloring pages of World War two fighter planes
