Satellites with Mr. Hill

Mr. Hill talked to the second grade classes about satellites. He showed us how the satellites are launched. We were surprised that sometimes the rocket launches with the satellite from a ship! We watched videos of successful launches and not so successful launches. We learned satellites are powered by solar panels and batteries. We watched a video clip of an antenna unfolding. The music playing during the video was Who Let the Dogs Out, so of course we all sang along with the chorus. It was fun to listen to music from XM Satellite radio. We asked Mr. Hill many, many questions! Thank you Mr. Hill!
