A Starry Night at Hershey
To celebrate the end of a night sky unit, 5th graders and their parents were invited to attend a Starry Night Party. This event gave families the opportunity to look through telescopes, star gaze, view constellation projects, and paint t-shirts. To prepare for the party, students spent time in the Starlab learning about constellations and they completed a constellation research project. The evening was a fantastic culmination of a rich learning experience. We would like to give a huge shout out to the volunteers from Wabash Valley Astronomical Society who set up and operated the telescopes for the party.
