My son picks the easiest subjects to learn about. I asked him what he was wanting to do for science this year because I am at a complete loss. He said, "Aerodynamics, flight and stuff." So now it is up to me to find all that. I would like to have an actual curriculum because this is not my area of expertise. lol Also I would like to have a lot of hands-on activities where he would need to build airplanes and "stuff".

TIA

Hunter is 12 and will be in 7th grade this year.

Have you looked at the Air and Space Museum site? http://www.nasm.si.edu/education/teaching_resources.cfm
