Upper El Students Start the New Year With Astronomy

Wondering about all those chalk marks in the parking lot? Well, students took advantage of the bright winter sunshine to spend a few minutes each hour measuring their shadows. Then, back in the classroom, they graphed those measurements. In addition to this they are keeping a moon journal for the next month. I know we all have our fingers crossed that the rain will return, but meanwhile these clear skies make observing the sun and moon possible…and fun!
