64: Sixth Grade Planetarium Visit


This was the last of the SIX groups of sixth graders that visited the planetarium today. I managed to do SIX one hour presentations in a row. As one group departed, another arrived. They were fun. Typical 11 and 12 year olds. Full of questions and comments. They even laughed at my jokes! The sixth graders come to the HS as part of their unit on the solar system. We had fun trying to line up the planets in order using models and emphasized the real distances! We looked at the Summer Triangle and the Winter Triangle, a number of constellations and stars, the Milky Way, and even the Pleiades/Suburu.
