At Pioneer Heritage Middle School, 7th Grade Science recently teamed up with thelibrary and technology staff to develop a lesson about alien life. For four days, students attended class in the PHMS library, where they visited 17 stations that each focusedon a different aspect of the science objectives. Students were given a packet with instructions and questions to guide them through the activities. Teachers launched the lesson by reading a storybook aloud. Then the space pioneers watched videos onlaptops, visited web sites,used the Mars Globe App on the iPod Touch Devices, and read stories related to their learning. At one station, students listened to a 1947 broadcast from Roswell,New Mexico,as they explored the Roswell Museum online.
