F.K. Sweet Third Graders Visit the Planetarium

Third grade students from Mrs. Eleanor Baker’s, Mrs. Lisa McGuire’s and Mrs. Barbara Bennett’s classes enjoyed a field trip to IRSC’s Hallstrom Planetarium. At the planetarium students enjoyed the show narrated by Mr. Jon Bell.  The new projector is amazing and made the whole experience even more exciting!  The students have a better understanding of the phases of the moon and about why we have four seasons, the planets and the conditions on each planet, and how stars and black holes are formed. The visit proved to be an interesting experience for the students.
