Reaching for the Stars Using iPads at Hardeman

Recently 5th grade students in Mrs. Hill’s class have been looking up, down, and all around.  Hill explains, “In science we are reviewing  the solar system.  We used an app on the iPads called Skyview.  The students had to move the iPad around to find the location of the sun and planets in the solar system.  Once they located either the sun or planets they could tap the image and gather information.  They also located the International Space Station when they pointed the iPad at the ground!  Some students were also able to locate the Hubble Telescope.”

  1. I just came across this older post - awesome use of technology in 5th grade! I have that app but have never thought about trying to find the International Space Station! Nice!
