The fourth grade from Old Forge came to the Planetarium today to play a game show called Earth Motions. They learned about the motions of the Earth, how the rotation of the Earth affects day and night and how the revolution of the Earth around the sun and the tilt of the Earth on its axis affect the seasons. They also identified constellations we can find in our current night sky and learned about how the rotation and revolution of the Earth affect things we observe in the sky. The students did a wonderful job participating in a game show with our special guest host Alan Trebek! Here are a few pictures from their visit:

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!
