Rimon and Te’enah Learn Astronomy
First and second grade students had the wonderful opportunity to meet with Rabbi Bazer today and learn about his special telescope. The children were able to compare the view through binoculars with the view through Rabbi Bazer’s telescope. It was amazing to see how much better the telescope magnifies distant items. If the weather cooperates later in the week, the children will have the chance to look at the sun through a special lens that both protects our eyes from the sun’s rays and allows us to see sun spots. In the meantime, the children had a chance to visit with the rabbi and to see pictures of his meetings with famous astronauts including Neil Armstrong.
