The Sunny Brae Elementary Global Awareness Magnet is proudly implementing multi-disciplinary units from the Flying Classroom in addition to our core curriculum.

What is The Flying Classroom?

The Flying Classroom is a K-8 integrative STEM+ supplemental curriculum. Flying Classroom includes standards and principles aligned to STEM and also includes correlated activities to geography, informational literacy, writing, art and social studies. Students work to develop critical thinking, collaboration, communication and creativity skills as they navigate through the expedition content. Each of the lessons within the Flying Classroom are based on the global expeditions of Captain Barrington Irving.

The Flying Classroom provides the opportunity for students to engage in current events that impact our-ever changing global society; enhancing the relevancy of the content and conceptual understandings of students.
