Second grade Quest classes have truly been enjoying our Mission Space Unit. We have been learning and doing many hands on activities that are helping to answer all of the questions that the students have had about space and our solar system. In order to gain even more knowledge, we took a journey to the other planets and our moon through a talking planetary map. This map takes your weight and calculates what you would weigh on the other planets. It also gives us super cool facts about each planet we visit just by standing on that particular planet. The students favorite part was being able to send a classmate out on a "Space Mission." The mission gave us 90 seconds to find the correct planet for the given fact. Depending on how many you get correct, is what results in your points at the end. The students did a great job and really enjoyed helping one another get to the correct planet in time.
