Del Valle Elementary 5th Grade Discoverers Learn about Space




On Monday, December 18th, Del Valle Elementary 5th grade students traveled to the New Mexico Space Museum to explore our Space History. Students enjoyed the exhibits as they participated in a Scavenger Hunt with various clues leading them to identify the artifact in question. Students were also able to explore various models of man-made satellites as well as see a real ‘moon rock’ during their trip.

Students were then treated to a Live Star Show in the New Horizons Planetarium. They took a tour of the night sky while a museum educator narrated the magnificence of our universe.
