Red Tails Educational Study Guide

Filed under: Daily News,Educational Adventures — dailynews @ 2:00 am

Yesterday we sent out a newsletter highlighting the Red Tails movie and how it can be used in your homeschooling program.  You can combine this exciting and educational movie with the Red Tails Educational Study Guide found on our site.   The Study Guide includes terms to know, a list of achievements, discussion questions and so much more.

The Tuskegee Airmen, who flew combat missions in World War II, were known by the nickname “Red Tails” for the distinctive red paint on the tails of their P-51s.  In total, about 1,000 pilots were trained at Tuskegee Army Air Field and approximately 335 pilots deployed to the war in Europe.

The Tuskegee Airmen fighter units thrived in the skies. Their squadrons flew more than 15,000 sorties on 1,500 missions and shot down 112 German aircrafts.  Together, they earned one Legion of Merit, one Silver Star, several Distinguished Unit Citations, 96 Distinguished Flying Crosses, many Purple Heart medals, 14 Bronze Stars and 744 Air Medals.

Tuskegee Airmen, Inc. is a nonprofit national organization dedicated to keeping alive the history and achievements of the original Tuskegee Airmen.  They have many programs for young people interested in science and aviation.  See their website for additional information.

And as always, fun learning is forever learning!
