ASTROMONY CLASS

I COULDN'T SLEEP LAST NIGHT because my mind kept whirling about Astronomy Class and I just had to get the lesson plans done. So around 1AM I got up & stayed up till about 2:30 doing them. This class is for G&C and they will do most of it on their own. They will have notebooks that they will turn in weekly so I can check their progress. Brian said he'd teach some things to them. They'll look up some library books, I'll see what I can get from Netflix, and Brian will play a game with them, called Hard Vacuum.


ASTROMONY CLASS is 9-10:30AM
