Today we had a group of gifted kids at the Center. They started out in the classroom, working in groups rotating from learning station to learning station. During the classroom portion, I walk around, checking on them, discuss various parts of their answers, etc. I get to the space food learning center, and the group has gotten to the question regarding what they think astronauts do with the trash from the packaging of space food. One kids chimes in with, "Well, they could just throw it out into space towards Earth, and it would just come down in the atmosphere."
Another kid's response, "Today in the weird weather category: It rained burgers in Connecticut!"
I about died laughing. Sixth graders are seriously hilarious!
