On Tuesday, April 30, the McKinney Christian Academy 3rd graders hosted the 1st graders for Space Day. The 1st and 3rd graders each matched with their buddies from chapel. There were four different stations for the buddies to travel to. The first station was crafting wooden rockets that they decorated. For the second station, each 3rd grader created a power point about the solar system and then presented these slides to their 1st grade buddy. The third station was on the circle, where the 1st grader was in a wagon while the 3rd grader pulled them around the sun. This activity is to show how the planets orbit around the sun. The final station was on the field, where there were stomp rockets and crafts to make straw rockets. After making the straw rockets, they would launch them to see how far they would go. Space day also included a lot of fun things such as Space Dunk Oreos for a snack, Dippin’ Dots, and Mrs. Boese launched a real rocket at the final station. They also had a Photo Booth that made the kids look as if they were in space. 3rd grade teacher Angela Williams said, “It was very cool to watch the rocket Mrs. Boese launched. We got to watch it fly up and land which was fun.”
