Take Flight: Aviation Heritage Lincolnshire

The resources in this collection have been produced by Innovate Educate as part of the materials developed for the Aviation Heritage Lincolnshire  website. The resources in this collection are focused on science, design and technology. The range of activities are suitable for primary school children and secondary school students up to the age of 16 years old.

The materials include teacher guidance, presentations and practical investigations that look at topics including:

Early primary school
* Forces in the playground

Aircraft Forces

Produced by Innovate Educate and Aviation Heritage Lincolnshire, these materials are aimed at primary school children who are already familiar with the idea of forces as pushes and pulls, and that forces can change the motion of objects.

Children think about the types of forces that apply to an aircraft...

Airfield Weather and Landing Lights

Produced by Innovate Educate and Aviation Heritage Lincolnshire, these materials look at how the weather can be observed and measured, and how this influences the working of an airfield. Students are also challenged to design and make electrical circuits for landing lights to indicate the appropriate runway for an...

Aviation Development

Produced by Innovate Educate and Aviation Heritage Lincolnshire, these materials allow primary children to consider the science and technology behind the development of flying machines. This encourages the investigation of forces and movement as well as looking at how products can be evaluated.

There are...

Can It Fly?

Produced by Innovate Educate and Aviation Heritage Lincolnshire, these materials can be used to encourage children to think about what types of things can fly. There are three activities. Each activity is self-contained, and so can be run individually, or as a sequence of activities.

The activities look at...
