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."

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.

For more information about the Jewish Academy of Orlando or to arrange a visit to the school, please contact Jessica Mishael, admissions manager, at or 407-647-0713.

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