One of our students shared that he visited the Udvar-Hazy Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum out near the Dulles airport and saw an Ultralight aircraft. It is the actual ultralight used by Operation Migration on one of the whooping crane migrations!
Another student shared a book he read at home about endangered animals. He noticed that one of the animals in the book is the whooping crane. To learn more about the two flocks of whooping cranes, read the online storybooks about the Western Flock and the Eastern Flock. We are following the migration of the Eastern flock.
It was fun that students from New Jersey sent Flat Stanley to Barrett Elementary. While Stanley was here, he learned about the whooping crane migration.
