Bible Theme: God is With Me!
With this fun flying lesson, children learn the God is
with them wherever they go....even if they're way up
high in an airplane !
Preschool Theme: Planes
This page is  full of airplane printables!  There are
coloring pages, bible verse bracelets, handwriting
worksheets and more!  We have everything you need
for a fun, high flying adventure.
Snack:
Have an "airline snack" of trail
mix or pretzels and lemonade.
Music & Movement:
Try one or both of the following action rhymes
or songs with the children:

The Wings on the Plane
I am an Airplane
Morning Circle:

Letter "Z."  Show the children the letter "Z."  
(B&W) Sound out the letter with the children.  
Does the letter tickle their tongues?  
Letter Z Word Wall
Show the following words, (Page 1  Page 2)
along with an accompanying picture, to the
children as you read them aloud:  Zebra, Zero,
Zipper, Zoo, Zigzag, and Zeppelin.  As you
show the children the picture of the Zeppelin,
ask them if they've ever seen anything like it.  
Ask them if they've ever seen a blimp.  Explain
briefly how Zeppelins are different from other
types of aircraft.

information on Zeppelins.
Airplane dramatic play.  
Provide caps and jackets that resemble pilot or steward
uniforms for dress-up play.  Provide some old pieces of
luggage, a scale, a wagon, rows of seats for the inside
buckles (old belts will do just fine,) card stock or paper
"tickets," some luggage tags (ask an airline counter if they
might lend a stack,) and a "ticket counter" with paper,
calculators, and rubber stamps and ink pads.
Counting review
(also aids in understanding the concept of "zero.")  Give
each child a "tally sheet" for various objects which may
(or may not,) be found on the table.  For example, list ten
items the children must find and count.  List these down
the sheet with an accompanying picture to help the
children associate the object with its written name.  Keep
the number of objects within the children's abilities, i.e.,
ten items or less.  Objects to count might include, for
example, ten paper clips, nine rubber bands, eight spoons,
seven toy planes, six stuffed animals, five drinking straws,
four socks, three shoe boxes, two tambourines, one beach
ball, and zero swimming pools.  Show the children how
to make tally marks beside each listing.  When they are
finished, help them write the appropriate numeric figure
beside each group of tallies.  It may help to have a chart
available which shows the correct number beside the
corresponding number of tally marks.  For instance, that
"llll" equals the number "4," and so on.
Paper airplane making center
Provide a demonstration, then help the children
make paper airplanes and have some races.  Here
are some great
folding techniques you can share
with children who are intersted.
Foam Core Airplanes
Use foam core (or matte board, or foam board, or Styrofoam trays like those
found in supermarkets for holding meat) and cut out two rectangles for each
child, about 4 inches (approximately 10 centimeters) wide by 11 inches long
(approx. 28 centimeters.)  In one of the rectangles, cut a 4 inch (10 cm) slit
for the "wings."  Take the other rectangle and insert it into this slit.  Secure
with sticky tape or a bit of Blue Tak.  Provide some stickers and markers or
crayons and let the children make each plane their own.  Take the planes for a
test flight.  Experiment a little.  Do the planes fly better with the wingtips
bent up, for example?  Try adding a little weight at the tip with a tiny bit of
Blue Tak or putty.  How does this change things?  Have fun, and have extra
foam pieces available, because the children will tear these up in a hurry!   
Plane Coloring Page
This is an additional coloring
page you can have handy to
pass out to children or for
them to take home.
Classroom Field Trip
Take the children to a local airport for a fun
excursion.  Ask to have a guided tour.  If you
know of any parents who fly their own planes,
ask permission for the children to come have
a look up close at their aircraft.
If I Could Fly.....Worksheet
This is a worksheet for children
to complete.  Help them write
in a favorite destination then
encourage them to draw in their
face and a picture of that place.
Bible Verse Bracelets:
Psalm 121:8

"The LORD will watch over
your coming and going
both now and forevermore."
Bible Song:
"Angels Watching Over Me"
by Peanut Butter Jellyfish.  
Handwriting Practice:  Z is for Zeppelin
This is an optional handwriting worksheet for children
who are ready to practice tracing the letters of the
alphabet.
Z is for Zepplin and children can color the
letter Z, and trace the words.  There is also
Z for
Zig-zag as well, and children draw the continuation of
the shapes.
Z is for Zeal
This is a Bible Coloring Page
of a girl jumping in the air,
filled with Zeal for God!
"Olvina Flies" by Grace Lin
The ideal picture book for every child’s first plane
trip. Olvina was starting to feel very nervous.
“Maybe I should get off the plane,” she thought.
“Chickens aren’t supposed to fly.” When Olvina gets
invited to the Tenth Annual Bird Convention in
Hawaii, she decides it’s high time to overcome her
fear of flying
"Amazing Airplanes" by Tony Mitton
Join our wacky animal crew for the flight of a lifetime!
From the airport terminal to the flight deck, the zippy
text and zappy art take children through how a plane
flies, safety rules, in-flight entertainment and air traffic
control. This action-packed picture book will delight
all children who love things that go!
"Olvina Flies" by Grace Lin
Explain that, although we might be afraid of new
things, like flying on an airplane, that Jesus promises
to be with us no matter where we are, even if we're
high in the sky!
