Parachute First Graders Ace Astronomy Quiz Questions

Question: What has 90 heads and a million questions?

Answer: The first graders in Parachute! 

On November 28, 2018, GMO volunteer Nancy gave a presentation to the first graders at Grand Valley Center For Family Learning entitled "The Sun, The Moon, and The Stars". The enthusiastic group of young people had been studying this topic for a number of weeks. The school hallways were decorated with fun posters that the first graders had created in this theme. They got to test their recently acquired knowledge by answering some fun quiz questions during the presentation. It is very gratifying to see so many young people be so curious about outer space and to have so many fascinating questions about what goes on there. Both teachers and students are looking forward to a subsequent trip to Grand Mesa Observatory to check out the night skies through our telescopes!
