Follow The Drinking Gourd
The third graders from Boonsboro came to the planetarium today to learn about the Drinking Gourd and how it helped people reach freedom. They learned what how to find the Drinking Gourd in the Sky, how it changes throughout the year, and how following it in the sky, will always lead you to the north. We also learned the Drinking Gourd song, and how that helped provide a map to freedom. 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!
