Ohio: Neil Armstrong

I’ve been fairly lucky in the books I’ve found for our 50 state studies, mostly they’ve worked really well for what we’ve been trying to do.  This one was another of our lucky finds.

It does a great job talking about Neil Armstrong and his dreams, but it also explains how it DIDN’T JUST HAPPEN.  He worked really hard from about 10 years old to be able to fly planes and eventually to be an astronaut.

So, while I plan to eventually do some fun crafts with them about this, for meeting with our friends we talked about what we wanted to be when we grow up and what we need to do to get ready.

We talked about all of the jobs he took, and all of the school he had to go through.

Of course my kids didn’t quite have a realistic plan, mostly.

Batman plans to be a ninja when he grows up, so to do that he needs to start collecting ninja weapons.

Superman plans to be a policeman and then a ninja.  He also needs to collect weapons.

Princess plans to be a missionary, and she needs to learn a lot about God.

Of those, only one is at all a viable plan.  You can be a missionary.  You can’t be a ninja policeman, or not legally.
