Bilingual Project observing the Solar System

By Francis Carlier

Fourth graders are learning about the solar system in French. To illustrate the concepts, the San Diego Astronomy Association brought telescopes for students to view the clear night sky. The students enjoyed the opportunity to view a full moon, Saturn, Jupiter, and Mercury and other bright star clusters- as well as a surprise group of satellites passing by! The students used their knowledge learned in French to ask questions in English to the members. We could hear everyone sharing knowledge in both English and French all night long.
