ASTRONAUTS: TEACHING OTHER SCHOOL KIDS ABOUT FAMOUS ASTRONAUTS, ROCKETS AND SPACE SHUTTLES
As we were becoming experts in astronauts last week we shared our knowledge with 4th and 5th graders as well as with 4 year olds.
In class we did pair talking: the idea is to talk in pairs about as many things as we can about astronauts in 5 minutes to then share with the rest of the class
We also did some free writing on how astronauts travel and where they live.
We watched a fantastic video about space shuttles taking off that we played really loud it was like being there for real, we als olearned what happened to the boosters when they fell down.
OUR ASTRONAUTS HALL OF FAME:
TIME FOR THE 5 YEAR OLDS CONFERENCES. I am so incredibly proud of my 5 and 6 year old ESL learners being able to explain things about astronauts and about how rockets and space shuttles work in English.
The las part of the project was writing about our favorite astronaut and checking what we have learned about astronauts as well as answering the questions we asked at the beginning of the project.
In order to take home all of our learning about space kids designed their own project covers
