Presentation at Hugh J. Boyd elementary school 2nd Grade - 06/03/2011

Hugh Boyd 2nd grade show

John Endreson gave an astronomy presentation for 2nd graders at the Hugh J. Boyd elementary school on June 3, 2011. The presentation included discussing and explaining the differences between the Universe, the Galaxies, and our Solar System, how the Sun and the planets formed from a Nebula, naming all the planets and answering questions about each one. He discussed the outer solar system objects, Asteroids and Comets, made a comet in the classroom, talked about the Sun, Sun Spots and Solar Flares then brought the class outside and they all viewed the Sun through special solar glasses and a solar telescope. He talked about how the early Earth formed and how Comets may have brought water and other ingredients for life to the earth. Click here to see all 37 photos of the event.
