A Trip to Outerspace

This was the unit of inquiry done by our 2nd graders. It helped them learn about the solar system, spaceships, the first men to walk on the moon, etc. And in order to broaden their knowledge, they visited the Moon Museum.

At the museum, thanks to astronaut Lily, students were able to touch real dirt from Mars, footprints from the moon, they learned about the insides of different planets, how the astronauts’ suits are, and Saturn 5 replicas. Once the activity was over, our kids received a diploma and a rock from the moon.
