Fourth- and fifth-graders at Kramer Lane Elementary School experienced a large Earth Science experience from guest Mary Watros of BOCES on March 21 and 22.

Ms. Watros brought her lesson on the Earth to life with a 19-foot diameter balloon globe, which was assembled in the school’s gymnasium. Her presentation also included satellite pictures of New York, Long Island and other parts of the planet. 

With students able to get a larger view of various continents, oceans and other landmarks, Ms. Watros explained the different climates, landscapes and environments that makes up the Earth. Students also had the opportunity to walk inside the large balloon to gain another perspective.

Kramer Lane thanks Ms. Watros for visiting our school to deliver an interactive presentation on the interesting facts of our planet.
