Boonsboro/E. Russell Hicks
Middle School Visit
Ms. Baker/Ms. Saylor
Tuesday, October 2, 2012
Ms. Baker and Ms. Saylor brought their middle school students to the planetarium this week to learn about the pictures we can make out of stars in the sky called constellations. They went outside to check out the model of a command module of a rocket ship and then came in to the planetarium to participate in Star Stories. The students did a wonderful job of acting out the stories and then identified objects in the sky such as the Big Dipper, the Pointer Stars, the North Star and the Milky Way to help guide them through the sky. Here are some pictures from their visit.
Ursa Major and Ursa Minor (The Great Bear and the Little Bear)
Draco the Dragon
Cepheus & Cassiopeia
Pegasus The Flying Horse
Corona Borealis The Northern Crown
Astronomers of the Day
At the end of the visit each teacher chose their Astronomer of the Day. These students exhibited the participation, listening and questioning skills needed to make a great astronomer! Congratulations to our Astronomers of the Day!
