Third Grade Visits the Planetarium

The third graders went on a field trip to visit the Morehead Planetarium in Chapel Hill, NC on April 9th, 2014.  The trip was used to supplement their current studies about space and the solar system. They first watched a show in the dome theater about the possibility of colonizing other planet for human life. The constellations and planets in our current night sky were shown at the end of the show. Third grade then saw a stage show about chemicals and matter where they saw multi-colored flames and the three states of matter. They finished with a picnic lunch on the planetarium lawn before heading on the bus home.
