Kindergartners See Stars!

Students at the Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center enjoyed learning about earth science in an extraordinary way this week. Denise Vacca of “Stars on The Move” brought the universe to the school’s multi-purpose room! Students entered an air-powered dome and the magic began. Using a projector, constellations began to fill the night sky and the students were definitely full of excitement. They were able to see and hear stories about Greek, Roman, and Egyptian mythical characters.

Other activities for the day included Polyvision board activities learning about constellations, a movie about space, and an exciting activity creating the phases of the moon with Oreo cookies.
