Educator testimonial

My students of Treeview School, Bidwell Campus enjoyed learning about the telescopes and the travels through space. The first and second graders enjoyed learning from the models, and they continued to think about what might be seen by the telescopes as they travel through space. After searching out pictures and reading more, the students decided to draw space, including stars, planets, and even the Hubble telescope. The students used black paper, crayons, and oil pastels to create their vision of space. The art was displayed all together on the hall bulletin board for everyone at school to enjoy. The students loved the opportunity to learn more about space and telescopes.
