The 2nd grade students from Mountain Green Elementary enjoyed a great field trip to the Clark Planetarium at The Gateway in Salt Lake City.  They were able to explore the many displays in the museum as well as participate in a live show in the dome theater.  They were able to experience a speedy sunrise and sunset, and learn how Earth’s rotation causes the motions of the sun, moon, and stars.  They viewed the spherical Earth, Moon, and Sun and heard a few stories about several constellations.  After the field trip the students walked down to the fountains at The Gateway.  There they ate lunch and enjoyed watching the fountains move to the olympic-themed music.
