February 2, 2009...Time to Visit the Stars

One of the highlights of third grade (or probably the others as well) is a visit to StarLab, the portable planetarium that visits our school once a year. This January the tech teacher, art, music, media specialist and I used the month to integrate the subject of the solar system. The kids loved the stories that Mrs Simpkins told them about the legends of the Greeks and American Indians. They are so knowledgeable now about the stars. I hope, at least one of them, will be inspired to reach for the stars in their lifetime.
