4th Grade Walks to Pluto

Students in Mrs. Carmichael's fourth grade class worked on walking a scale model of the solar system.  They integrated their science and literacy learning with movement and mathematics to determine the steps and distances it would take to walk to various objects in the solar system.  Fourth grade students left small pictures of solar system objects attached to the fence and other equipment at Fall River Elementary for other students to participate in the experience, too.  This activity was part of a unit Mrs. Carmichael was teaching on Earth/Space science.
