Learning about Air Traffic Control

Today, we had a special guest in our classroom. Mr. Chris Saunders is a retired Air Traffic Controller and came to FOF to share about his career. The students enjoyed learning all about how the thousands of planes in the sky are directed each and everyday. Mr. Saunders showed them the phonetic alphabet that is used to communicate as well. Below is the website we explored together. It tracks all the flights in the world!
