A Space Art Trip to the Moon



A collection of rare and spectacular Pre-Space Age Images, showing an old-age dream of flying to the Moon, a dream that was only fulfilled on 20 July 1969, when Neil Armstrong stepped out onto the Lunar Surface and made his first Giant Leap for Mankind. This would be a great 'teaser' to introduce students to space exploration.

I dedicate it To Alan & Dylan and all Children Dreaming of Flying to the Moon

C-Span Bus Came to Our School

I was excited to see the C-Span bus parked outside our glass doors. I went inside on my lunch break. The bus had a beautiful wood interior, leather seats, and had 6 or 7 televisions. I wish my fourth-graders could have visited, but the school allowed only sixth-graders and older to go inside the bus. It was nice to see the bus up close--I wish I could have spent more time inside.
