Jewish Academy first graders blast off into outer space
On March 24, the first-grade students participated in their annual Space program. This fun, fact-filled program encompassed props, live music, a slide show, and a display of student artwork related to the thematic unit, and was the culmination of their integrated science unit, "Sun, Moon and Stars."
The multi-faceted curriculum included the creation of vocabulary journals, lunar models, space mobiles, and was enriched by a visit to the Seminole State Planetarium. There, students experienced what a night sky would look like without light pollution. They were amazed!
The first graders worked very hard to prepare for this program: memorizing lines, learning songs, and creating artwork.
