Jewish Academy first graders blast off into outer space


Jewish Academy first graders give a presentation on the sun, moon and planets during their study of 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."

First graders are ready, with their 'oxygen tanks' and special sunglasses, to go into outer space.

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.
