On Thursday, the 4th grade students at BCES visited Young Harris College. The field trip was sponsored by Gilreath Trucking, Inc. The students viewed Earth, Moon, & Sun in Rollins Planetarium. They were able to explore the relationship between the Earth, Moon and Sun with the help of Coyote, an amusing character adapted from Native American traditions. Students learned why the Sun rises and sets and the basics of solar energy. They also examined the Moon’s orbit, craters, phases and eclipses. Young Harris student volunteers led BCES on a tour of the campus as well. Our BCES students were very well behaved and asked some very good questions!
