Mrs. Fowler visited the first graders at Poplarville Lower Elementary for a space review of geometry. The students had been learning about various geometric solids and their attributes. This lesson incorporated the math lesson along with the story they were reading Ellen Ochoa in Space. As she created the rocket, launch pad, “Houston Mission Control”, observation tower, and radar tower, she reviewed the different 2d and 3d shapes. After using math to build the rocket, science was used to make the rocket fly. An introduction to solids, liquids, and gases helped the students understand a little about the chemical reaction that pushed the rocket up. The students LOVED it!
