Follow the Drinking Gourd
The third graders from Emma K. Doub came to the planetarium today to participate in the program, Follow the Drinking Gourd. Students learned about the Drinking Gourd and how to find it in the sky, and how it helped to guide people to freedom. Students also learned the Drinking Gourd song and how it acted as a kind of map to help the slaves find their freedom in Canada. Here are some pictures from their visit!
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!
