Ms. Dell, Mr. Matthews
Emma K. Doub's fourth graders visited the planetarium this week to learn about the constellations with the program Star Stories. The students identified the Big Dipper, the Pointer Stars, the North Star, and the Milky Way, and learned how to use these to navigate their way around the sky. The students also did a great job acting out the Greek Myths that tell why they believed we see these constellations in the sky. Here are some pictures from their visit!
Ursa Major and Ursa Minor (The Great Bear & The Little Bear)
Draco the Dragon
Cepheus & Cassiopeia
Cygnus the Swan
Pegasus The Flying Horse
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!
