GRADE 3 SPACE MISSION
Grade 3 Goes to the Challenger Learning Center
On Monday, December 12th through Wednesday, December 14th, Weatherbee 3rd graders went to the Challenger Learning Center for an important space mission! This immersive experience was all possible because Mrs. Adams, a 3rd grade teacher had earned a grant from the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation. She then organized transportation and got a grant through the Weatherbee PTO! We are grateful to both organizations for making this happen.
Students participated in a simulated space shuttle adventure. They're learned about geology , did labs to determine which rocks were magnetic, weighed and measured rocks. Additionally, did a series of tests to determine how much to feed the mice, tried navigating, fitness training, and practiced communicating and completing tasks during a simulation! As third graders reflected they shared their favorite moments they shared:
- Evan said, "I liked the robotic arm!"
- Hope shared, "I liked the fact that an astronaut has to exercise for two hours."
- Kolton said, " My favorite part was the air chamber."
- Regan shared, "I learned that you can grow 3 inches in space."
- "I learned I want to be an astronaut." Aiden
Thank you to the Challenger Learning Center of Maine for this fantastic experience!
