Space…the last frontier!

During the first week of May this year, RSU #1 was fortunate to have a Space Week.  Our elementary students were treated to a presentation by an astronaut.  Students were also learning about space in a literacy unit.  Prior to the event, kindergarten students created a multi-media space-scape.  We used white paint and a toothbrush to create the Milky Way, paper, crayons and textured rubbing plates to make planets and cut paper and oil pastels for the space shuttles.  Sparkly stars were created using shaped sequins.   As you can see, the results are out of this world!
