The sixth graders visited the Space Exhibition this week. The purpose of this field trip was for students to learn about the various space programs that enable humans to discover the planets that are near and far.
The highlight of the field trip was the simulators. Students gained experience on how astronauts are trained.
Students also participated in a "treasure hunt" exercise where they had to find answers to questions. For example: What kind of animals were sent to space? What was the most famous space animal and what was its name? How do astronauts store their food on the space shuttle? Why is it important for the astronauts to exercise regularly? This was an interesting, interactive exhibition.
