Through our National Geographics science program, our second graders have
been learning about the sun, moon, and stars. This program integrates many
lessons into a unit. In the photographs that you are about to see, students
are working on the project aspect of the assignment. However, before the
cutting and gluing began, there was research that our scientists had to do. They
read many nonfiction and informational texts on the sun. They took notes, in their
own words, of facts that they felt were important. Then the note taking became
part of the hands- on activity!
