Space!,the final frontier, Thank you James T. Kirk, now I want to share space with my students. Actually we don't want to travel, we just want to get an idea of what it looks like and how the planets line up. We are a mid-sized school in rural southeastern North Carolina. We are an agricultural community, with no large cities or towns, but plenty of farms and animals! Our school serves grades Pre-K - 6. We are in sixth grade and will be tested this year on the science curriculum, so the teachers are trying to supplement our materials and text books. Hands on is the way some of us learn best, and 3-D is really cool.
So we are looking to obtain a lighted planetarium, to demonstrate how the planets revolve around the sun, a take apart earth and sun to show what they are made of and some posters about the plants and the rocks that make up the earth. We also will study rocks and minerals in another area of our science curriculum. The planetarium actually lights up and will project on the ceiling in our classroom. So if we can later travel to the big planetarium we will be familiar with what to expect. Most of us have never traveled much farther than 20 miles from home! So space travel is an adventure even if we don't leave the classroom.
We would really like to have this cool light-up space set for our room, we could all use it with our presentations and gain an understanding of where the planets are in relationship to the Earth. This will come in handy when we are astronauts with poor sense of direction! Also a poster to decorate our class with the planets, and a take apart sun and earth, helpful when talking about sun spots and volcano's, also part of the curriculum and finally a collection of rocks that are found here on earth, wonder where they came from? hummmm?
So in closing, thank you for your time to read this. And keep in mind that in 20 or so years when we have another space launch, it maybe one of us, and you would have helped us on our way! Truthfully, thank you for considering this and just visiting the web site. It can never be truly conveyed how big of an impact your gift has made on young lives.
