Sharpsburg Elementary Grade 4
Wednesday, September 19
Ms. Shaw, Ms. Monninger, Ms. Kirkpatrick
Sharpsburg's fourth grade class came to the Planetarium today to participate in a game show called "Earth Motion Mania", hosted by local celebrity game show host, Alan Trebek. In between Mr. Trebek's many hair appointments he played Earth Motions Mania with the fourth graders from Sharpsburg. The game show was based on what the students learned at the planetarium today about rotation, revolution and the how these motions affect things such as our seasons, our day and night and how things appear to move through the sky. The students did a great job participating in the game show and made Mr. Trebek's visit a very enjoyable one! Here are a few pictures from the show:

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!
