SBCSC School Field TripsField trip

The planetarium at Kennedy Primary Academy offers SBCSC students a unique opportunity to explore space science topics. The school corporation proudly sponsors a field trip for all SBCSC students enrolled in grade levels 4 - 6.

All of our programs for school groups  align with the
Indiana’s Academic Standards for Science. To schedule your group, please click the following links on the side to register your grade level at your SBCSC school. We look forward to engaging both you and your students in the wonderful and exciting world of Astronomy!

State Standards Listed Below
  • 4th Grade - Earth and Space Science (ESS) 
    • E4.ESS.1  Investigate how the moon appears to move through the sky and it changes day to day, emphasizing the importance of how the moon impacts the Earth, the rising and setting times, and solar and lunar eclipses.
  • 5th Grade - Earth and Space Science (ESS)
    •  5.ESS.1 Analyze the scale of our solar system and its components: our solar system includes the sun, moon, seven other planets and their moons, and many other objects like asteroids and comets.
    • 5.ESS.2 Represent data in graphical displays to reveal patterns of daily changes in length and direction of shadows, day and night, and the seasonal appearance of some stars in the night sky.
  • 6th Grade - Earth and Space Science (ESS)
    • 6.ESS.1 Describe the role of gravity and inertia in maintaining the regular and predictable motion of celestial bodies.
    • 6.ESS.2 Design models to describe how Earth's rotation, revolution, tilt, and interaction with the sun and moon cause seasons, tides, changes in daylight hours, eclipses, and phases of the moon.
    • 6.ESS.3 Compare and contrast the Earth, its moon, and other planets in the solar system, including comets and asteroids. (Comparisons should be made in regard to size, surface features, atmospheric characteristics, and the ability to support life.)
