Blast-Off to Space: The Dwarf Planets
Kristina RI. (MAT BBA. AA. Spanish. TEFL)
In Blast-Off to Space: The Dwarf Planets, students will be introduced to the Dwarf Planets in our Solar System: Ceres, Pluto, Makemake, Haumea & Eris, & will learn how each of these is unique in an exciting, 4-day, interactive & fun course.
As Space is becoming increasingly important in most countries around the world, especially given the amount of Space travel that has recently increased, it is more and more important for our children to know, at least basic knowledge about the Space around us, our Solar System, and the incredible objects we have found in the Cosmos, such as planets, moons, space rocks, galaxies, and more! Plus, most learners find this topic to be extremely interesting as their young minds get to explore the...
Students will be able to define Dwarf Planets & tell how they are different than the Main Planets in our Solar System. Learners will also be able to identify all five Dwarf Planets located within our Solar System: Ceres, Pluto, Haumea, Makemake, and Eris, as well as describe some basic features for each of these, such as structure, surface, atmosphere, moons, and more.
I have always had a love of space, from the moment my grandpa, an amateur astronomer, let me look through the 10-foot telescope he built all by himself, to watching shuttles & satellites lift into the sky, and watching some fall back to the earth. I have spotted some of the largest dust storms to hit Mars, and have enjoyed looking at the various craters on our Moon and seeing the rings around Saturn, all from my own backyard in Missouri & while using other telescopes my grandpa built. I have never ceased my exploration and search, looking to the skies to watch for eclipses, comets, and so much more! My love of all things Space has only increased with time, and I feel it is the next great wave of the future! As a teacher with a Master’s Degree in Teaching & over 30 years of experience working with children of various ages, and more than 5 years teaching students about Space, as well as other Science-related subject-matter, I love sharing my knowledge with the next generation. My hope is to instill the awe-inspiring beauty the Unknown Universe holds, as well as encourage students to dream and believe! I hope to see you in class as we Blast-Off to Space!
