The fourth graders from Rockland Woods visited the planetarium this week and participated in everyone's favorite game show, Earth Motions Mania, with special guest host, Alan Trebek! The students learned about rotation (spin of the earth on its axis) and revolution (the motion of the earth around the sun), and how these motions affect days, seasons, and what we see in the sky. The students all participated in the game show based on these motions with Alan Trebek. Here are some pictures from their visits!
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!
