January 11 is Amelia Earhart Day. On January 11, 1935, Amelia Earhart became the first person—man or woman—to fly solo across the Pacific Ocean.

She encountered weather difficulties and was not heard from again. After weeks of searching that spanned 250,000 square miles of ocean, the U.S. government ended the search. Earhart is admired for her incredible bravery and for breaking barriers for women.

Here are some ways teachers and families can celebrate the life and spirit of Amelia Earhart.
