Each teacher had a lesson prepared and then shared with each homeroom group throughout the day. One did a lesson on Mars, another on food in space, another balloon rockets, another straw rockets, and another on Bernoulli's theory. As I poked my head in each group to take a look, the kids were definitely having a great time.
I finally remembered to pull out my phone and take a few photos...some a little too late. I was so proud of all the teachers though. I love when you see teamwork by the teachers.
Kind of rare these days...
|Some of the targets were laying flat on the floor while others were hanging.|
|One teacher taught about Mars and the students made a timeline of facts.|
And I am sad that I got no pictures of the students using the balloon rockets and measuring for distance traveled or the lesson on eating in space.
|One of the dad pilots shared several video clips with the students. This is showed night vision and another I saw had them doing drops of cargo into a very small targeted area.|
|They shared some of the planes that fly over in our area.|
They ended up in the multipurpose room with a guest author, and then their very own military dad pilots' as guest speakers. They loved this. I loved how well behaved they were and how attentive they were. Good job third graders.
Each time I see our very own military doing things in the schools like this, I am reminded of how lucky we are to live in our area. Each room had volunteers from Hurlburt helping out with the projects going on in each of the rooms.
