Today Kindergarten students learned about the United State’s past missions to the moon. We also talked a little bit about plans for a future moon mission. We watched an Apollo 11 video created by previous Barrett students, Milayka and Jesse. Then the students rotated through centers:

  • Make craters on the moon
  • Read moon books in the space capsule tent
  • Pick up pretent moon rocks with a special tool
  • Try on Flight Suits – Photo opportunity!
  • Dress an astronaut in spacesuit on the SMART Board
  • Smile for the camera behind the astronaut cutouts with the moon landscape
  • Role play with models (toys) of astronauts, rockets, and lunar rovers
  • Launch stomp rockets to the moon and record data on a graph
