Sunny Side of the Moon
The second graders from Potomac Heights Elementary came to the planetarium today to learn about the moon with special guest, Sunny the Dog. The students helped Sunny to figure out where the moon gets its light, what it is made out of and why astronauts need space suits when they go to the moon. Because of their help, Sunny was able to become an astronaut and even rode in a rocket to the moon! The students also learned about the phases of the moon and why the phases change throughout the month. 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!
