Amelia Earhart

Introduction

Have you ever heard of someone who shot rats in a barn, built a roller coaster, and flew across the Atlantic Ocean? Well, meet Amelia Earhart, the first woman to fly across the Atlantic.

 

Childhood and Family

Amelia Earhart was born on July 24, 1897 in Atchison, Kansas.Nobody knows exactly when she died. She had three family members: Amelia Otis Earhart, her mom, Samuel Stanton Earhart, her dad, and Grace Muriel Earhart, her sister. George P. Putnam was her husband. They were married on February 2, 1931.Amelia was a pretty good student. Her favorite subjects were Chemistry and Physics.

 

Accomplishments

 

Amelia Earhart did a lot of things; including building a roller coaster with her uncle and Grace. She got the idea from seeing her first roller coaster. When she was older she invited her family to an airshow. But she did not sit with them, she was in the show! She flew higher than any woman had ever flown before. After a lot of hard work and flying across the Atlantic as a passenger, she flew across the Atlantic as the pilot.

 

Interesting Facts

 

When Amelia Earhart was a nurse for the Air Force, she heard stories of soaring and flying which made her want to try to fly. When she finally did get to air school she was taught by a FEMALE pilot.Another interesting fact is that George P. Putnam had to ask 5 times before she said yes to marriage. I hope you enjoyed the adventures of Amelia Earhart.
