Jebb has been studying the planet Mars in a unit at school. Their class studied the rover that was sent there and imagined what it might be like to colonize Mars. Jebb has been really enthusiastic about it and even built his own Rover. Tonight the class had a celebration of all things Mars and we got to go to the school and see all of the things they learned.

covered the lights and gave a red glow.
Politcal Sidenote: The kids learned all about Sustainable Development which is a hot topic in our local politics right now. They learned there are too many people and we need to be managed and clustered into smaller spaces (apartment buildings for example). I never cease to be surprised by the increasingly green ideology that permeates all of their school work. Global warming is another popular reading/writing topic. When Gabe did his 2nd grade community project, he asked to make the town gravel pit in the classroom's 'city'. I was glad that he unknowingly brought up mineral resources to be discussed. ;).
