Eyes to the Sky Project

 

Eyes to the Sky Project

April 22, 2013


It’s time for another home project!  We would like to explore our connections to nature through a study of something in the sky.

Here’s what you should do:


  1. Choose a topic.  Students should identify something they are wondering about in the world above us.  It might be about space, aviation, birds, weather, storms…really anything you might see or imagine if your eyes are to the sky.  It’s most important that your child is really interested in the chosen topic.

  2. Think of a question to guide your learning.  How does rain get into the clouds?  Why do tornados start?  How do astronauts eat?  What is in Jupiter’s big spot?  Why do some birds migrate?  What are feathers like?  Write your question on the form attached and send it back to school.

  3. Learn about it.  Research your question at a library, on the internet, or in books you have at home.  Ask an expert about your topic.  Take a family field trip or do an experiment.  Learn about your question in the best way for you and your family.

  4. Show and tell what you have learned.    The product might be a book, a poster, a mobile, a diorama, a poem, a painting, a model, etc.  Make sure there is some writing that explains your work.  

  5. Bring finished products to school on Wednesday, May 29 at 7:45.  Our Sky Show will take place on Friday, May 31 at 7:45 a.m. .  Parents are invited to come and see all the projects at that time.



We hope students will have fun, learn something new and do their own best work.  Parents should be the helpers, not the directors of the project.  Parents, feel free to ask questions or make comments.  Use the phone, email or send a note.  Happy learning!
