A2 Students Visit Spaceport Sheboygan
Spaceport Sheboygan was the destination for students at A2 Charter School on Tuesday, November 8. Children spent the afternoon getting a close up look at parts of rockets that had been used to send American space vehicles into space as well as learning some of the day-to-day habits of astronauts living on the space station.
With the use of digital technology, a lesson in earth sun relationships was reinforced, helping students to grasp the reasons for earth’s seasons, climate variations and more.
Students also used beads to represent our solar system and arranged them on a bracelet that mimicked the actual placement of the sun and planets.
Director of Educational Operations for Spaceport Sheboygan, Daniel Bateman, and A2 teachers, Sandy Spatt and Kathy Nelesen supervised the activities.
