  • Ed White Elementary Uses Space Cycles to Travel to Different Missions!

    Ed White Elementary students had a blast using scooter boards as their "space cycles"! Students were able to travel from station to station on their space cycles. They really enjoyed driving their cycles under the tunnels! We learned the importance of using alternative transportation to prevent polluting the environment.
    We combined "Space Roll & Roll" with bowling! Students were able to log roll down a mat using their body to knock down the bowling pins (animals) at the end of the lane. We called this "Space Roll & Roll Body Bowling"! Students focused on using their core muscles along with agility to keep their body on the mat. This was a favorite "Mission X" activity!!!
    Check out our "Train Like an Astronaut Word Wall". We incorporate these words/definitions for each mission lesson.
    We are looking forward to seeing Astro Charlie reach his goal! We are almost there!!!

  • Team USA Eaglets learn about gravity like Buzz!

     A weighty subject

    To help our young astronauts experience the different weight of objects on the various planets due to a variety of gravitational forces/ different mass, we used an assortment of very light, medium and heavy weight medicine balls in a game called "Buzz Lightyears' Planetary Exploration." We also learned that our teacher (who weighs 185 lbs on earth) would weigh just a mere 30 lbs. on the moon.

    Tossing the sponge balls to each other in small groups was surely a different challenge than catching the 4lb medicine ball was, yet the most fun that we had was when we learned that the longest golf shot in history took place.......on the MOON!!!!!! What a fantastic STEM lesson from Alan Shepard!!!!

    Our next challenge is to go and retrieve that ball!!!!

  • NASA Mission X Team USA Sharon Launches MX 2014!

    Proudly displaying the colors in Sharon!

    Team USA Sharon officially launched the Mission X 2014 campaign at Heights Elementary School during the past month and early February!

    All students in our K-5 classes participated in astronaut training exercises as well as some fantastic STEM lessons known as "EDC", or the Exploration Design Challenge.

    We wish all of our fellow Mission X teams in the US and around the world the very best for a successful mission for our dear friend Astro Charlie!

  • Ed White Elementary...4 Mission Completed!!!

    Ed White Elementary students held a "Mission X" event on Jan. 29th. All students, grades K-5, participated in the challenge! Our school completed Crew Assembly, Crew Strength Training, Agility Astro Course, and Building an Astronaut Core! We had a blast!
    We look forward to helping Astro Charlie get closer to the moon!
