NASA to Belmont Via Video

Fifth-graders at Belmont culminated their unit on the solar system by videoconferencing with educators from National Aeronautics Space Administration.

The unit included lessons about research using books and online resources, such as NASA Space101; fantasy art, which students created by designing their own planet, moon or sun; and music, which offered students a unique perspective in the form of various compositions. The videoconference offered students the opportunity to ask an expert in the field questions based on what they have learned throughout the unit.
