In-flight activities

It's a long journey travelling from London to New York City so why not look at the in-flight shop and choose some things to buy.

 

I would like to buy 1 Star Wars watch, 2 unicorn tangle teezers and the lip balm. How much would that cost altogether? 

I have £50. How much more do I need?

I want to buy three objects that are under £100. Which three objects could I buy?

 

In-flight food

Now we are sure you'll agree, it's time to feed all the passengers. They're hungry! Can you create a main meal for this flight? Remember to use the healthy eating plate so that you have a range of proteins, vegetables and carbohydrates! If you have time, make the meal with an adult

We've landed: our destination is New York City

We have finally arrived in the "Big Apple." You might be feeling a little bit tired from the 'jet lag'. Did you know there's a time difference between the UK and USA? Perhaps you can find out how much it is/

 

To get a better view we're going to climb the top of a very famous building called the Empire State Building. Let's go.

Next stop: Arizona

Grand Cayon

Before we board the plane back home, here are some ideas you can try;

  • Write a fact file about Mayan people, using the websites below to help you research more facts
  • Find out about Mayan masks and try designing your own
  • Have a go at Mayan football. How is it similar and different to the game we play today?
