Although, our students are from socio-economically challenged backgrounds, and all qualify to receive free lunches, they attend school regularly, eager to learn. They are highly curious 3rd graders with a variety of interests, mostly in the area of science and technology. They also enjoy collaborating with each other on projects for science, writing, and critical thinking.
Our students have developed and demonstrated a deeper understanding of kindness in their interaction with peers.
Early in the year we completed a kindness project, listening to a read aloud story, "Wonder," creating a wonder portrait, and keeping a kindness journal for 20 days. This was a great way to begin growing our classroom community.
This trip will make a difference to our students by creating prior visual knowledge for the actual unit we will be teaching about the Solar System and the planets. This is important because our students do not have a lot of educational experiences to draw from.
The first part of the planetarium presentation is an overview of the constellations and the night sky.
Including, Cassiopeia, Taurus the bull, and Orion. The second part is a movie about two kids who travel into the solar system in a cardboard rocket. The stunning graphics of the planets provide students with an experience that appears real.
