Today we talked about the importance of our learning to the real world, and we specifically talked about how science, math, and research help us every day. To highlight the importance of developing these important skills, and the importance of being creative, we talked about two milestones: the 25th anniversary of the Hubble Telescope and the opening of One World Trade Center.
Both of these accomplishments showcase people using art, math, science, creative thinking, and problem solving skills. We also noticed that reading and writing were important parts of the ways people were sharing these important events with the world. While we couldn't take time to look at every image or learn every fact about Hubble and One World Trade Center, the kids were very interested about both. You can check out the links below or do your own search to learn more about both of these events.
