CES Wings Express students make moon craters

Campbellsville Elementary School Wings Express students recently enjoyed a day of learning about the moon.

 

Wings Express students attended a two-week summer camp recently to have fun and learn together.

 

Students worked with teachers to sharpen their reading and math skills, while also having fun on several special trips and meeting several guest speakers.

 

One trip was to Taylor County Public Library.

 

Students learned about the moon’s surface and atmosphere, and then put their knowledge to the test.

 

The students made their own moon craters by mixing together flour and cocoa and then used raisins to make craters.

 

They also had fun completing a space picture search puzzle.

 

Wings Express is a program to help students with homework and other activities.

 

Students receive help with reading, math, science, technology, social skills and more. They also participate in activities to learn about nutrition.

 

The program, which is for students in kindergarten through third grade, is free to those who apply and are accepted.

 

Doug Holmes is Wings Express director.

 

For more information, or to donate to or volunteer with the program, call Holmes at (270) 465-4561.
