Galileo was an amazing man. In the fifth grade, we were given the pleasure of learning all about him and his accomplishments. We met a man who dressed and acted exactly like Galileo. He taught us many things about "himself." For example, we learned that when Galileo was young his dream was to be a musician. He also taught us about the constellations and the stars. In addition to this he taught us about the many challenges he faced to becoming as great as he is now. After a wonderful presentation by "Galileo" in the morning, our class received a question and answer period in the afternoon. We even got to look through his telescope! Many great questions were asked with even better answers. All in all, it was a wonderful day full of fun and valuable information.
