The Aeronauts by Amazon Studios 

The Aeronauts follows widow Amelia Wren (Jones) and scientist James Glaisher (Redmayne), as they mount a balloon expedition to fly higher than anyone in history. This is a journey to the very edge of existence, where the air is thin and the chances of survival are slim.

Use these lesson plans to make the movie come to life for your students to help explore themes around weather, layers of the atomosphere, STEM, women in science, and the physics of hot air balloons.
