Amy Johnson's Logbook

Activity Ideas and Curriculum Links

Activity Ideas:

  • If you look carefully at the detail page of the logbook you can see that part of Amy's journey took her from Allahabad to Calcutta, and then from Calcutta to Rangoon.
    Use the Google map below to identify that part of the journey and try to imagine what route she had taken to get that far and where she went after that to get to Australia.
  • Some Indian cities have changed their name since the time Amy was alive.
    Look carefully at the map and see if you can work out what Calcutta is called today.
  • Do you know of any other Indian cities that have changed their name over the last 50 years?
  • What kind of experiences do you think Amy might have had at the places she visited.
  • It took Amy 19 days to reach Australia in 1930. How long would that journey take today by plane? What procedures would you have to go through today that Amy probably didn't have to?
  • What do we mean by the 'Global Village'?
  • See if you can find out about any other famous women on My Learning and what they achieved.
