The Mill Village second graders had their first field trip on November 8th to the Yahn Planetarium at Penn State Behrend. The students were able to sit back and watch a video in the sky that took them in a rocket ship to each of the planets! Students got to look at the stars and learn about different constellations. Afterwards, the students also got to visit different stations with facts about each planet. A favorite station of the students was stepping on a scale and seeing how much they would weigh on each planet. A student who weighs 57 pounds on Earth would only weigh about 9 pounds on the moon!
