Third Grade Astronomy Night!
Is the sun the biggest and brightest star? Why do shadows look different at various times throughout the day? What is rotation and revolution?
The third grade students have discovered answers to these challenging questions as they delved into a unit of study on the day and night sky. To celebrate the ending of an "out of this world" unit, the Charlotte Amateur Astronomers Club will be visiting Fairview Elementary on Thursday night, January 23rd (weather permitting).
Each year Fairview Elementary establishes a program to help children during the holiday season. Teachers and students are given the opportunity to participate in a program called “Adopt a Child”. This program consists of a whole class “adopting” a child for the holiday season. Age, gender, clothing sizes and interests are given to the students of participating classes. These students then take the information given to them and purchase items on the list to give back to these anonymous children for the holidays. (This program was truly optional to participate in.)Full Story
