What Ever Happened to Amelia Earhart?
By Jennifer Kenny

1     Could someone actually vanish into thin air, or could that only happen in the movies? If you think it could only happen in the movies, what would you say happened to Amelia Earhart on July 2, 1937?
2     Amelia Earhart was born in Kansas on July 24, 1897. She had always been a tomboy who liked to climb trees and hunt rats with a gun. She also kept a scrapbook about women who thrived in jobs that men usually did.
3     Amelia Earhart saw her first plane at a state fair when she was ten years old. For someone who was going to become famous for flying airplanes, she really wasn't very interested at the time. Then, in 1920, Frank Hawks flew Amelia Earhart on a plane for the first time. The feeling she had in the air changed her life. She knew she had to fly!
4     Earhart took her first flying lesson in January of 1921. Six months later, she bought her first plane. It was a bright yellow two-seater plane that she called "Canary."
