I am a fifth grade teacher in New Jersey. Last year, my students and I created this astronomy blog.  We do not have any followers yet, and would love to invite other classes to read and respond to our blog. I am plan to continue the blog in the fall. Check it out!  Here is the link:

Looking forward to hearing from you!

    I have noticed that many have viewed this but I have not had any responses.  I would really appreciate it if students visited our astronomy blog and posted questions. My students would love to respond.  We start school on September 4. I look forward to hearing from other schools.

     

    Thanks.

      Hi Elena,

       

      What a great blog! I love the idea of using a blog format to present information.

       

      I left a comment on the I Wonder post. Best wishes for the new school year!

        Thanks. I started using the blog because my students had so many questions when we were studying space in our Astronomy unit. I found that I could not spend the entire class answering questions, but I really wanted to encourage the sense of wonder about space. I also did not want to be the only resource for answers. By having a blog, they could take on the role of researcher and answer one another's questions.

        My only challenge so far is to get others to make comments and post questions and to follow the blog.

         

        Thanks for posting! Please share the blog with any other educators or space enthusiasts!

         

        Elena
