My Students

Each year our 1st grade team does a Space Camp for all the 1st grade students. They have many questions and are eager to learn. Their questions are varied and cover many areas of space and space travel. Many students come from a low income household and what they learn in school may be their only opportunity to learn about the excitement of outer space.

These students are inquisitive and want to learn.

I would like to make outer space come alive for them. They are excited to learn and have very active minds. It is great to see them so enthusiastic. I love their energy.

My Project

I am invited to give a presentation on astronauts and outer space at the conclusion of Space Camp. I am the Speech-Language Therapist at our school, and the 1st grade teachers know that I have a great interest in NASA and outer space because my father was an astronaut and flew on the Space Shuttle Challenger. The students are enthusiastic and have many questions for me. It is great to see their excitement.

The earth from outer space looks like a blue marble.

The blue Earth (stress) balls are to remind them of the beauty and importance of our plant Earth and how we must take care of it as it is the only place we have to live.

The moon is its own special place. Only 12 people have walked on its surface. The moon/galaxy necklaces are to remind them of the beauty of the moon and the excitement of space travel. We will continue to explore outer space in the future and very likely will go back to the moon. I want these students to feel a connection to that.
