Sullivan – S12 – Reading Activity #8

Teacher: Sullivan (


Check out this week’s article from Scholastic, it’s all about jet packs! I recommend you watch the video too. It’s very exciting, and will help you understand how the jet pack works.

Follow these directions for the second writing response.

  • Watch the video “Jet Suit Science” below to see the jet suit in action. Now imagine that you spent an afternoon flying with a jet suit. Write a first-person narrative story about your experience defying gravity. Be sure to include lots of details, like where you traveled, what you saw, and what it felt like to fly.
Remember, a “first-person narrative” means that you are telling the story, so you can start your sentences with-
  • “I saw…”
  • “I went…”
  • “I flew…”
