To Infinity and Beyond
How do patterns of the sky help us understand how the moon, sun, and stars move across the sky?

In first grade, students become Astronomers. They learn to explore, take notes and create their own diorama and Powerpoint presentation.  In this website student will transform into astronomers using hands on activities to explore and learn all about the Earth, sun, moon, and stars.  The activities are for parents, students and teachers to work together. The lessons are engaging, interactive and videos highlighting the solar system.  The final product is amazing!
