Apollo 13 “A Successful Failure”. Today, we will learn about another mission which attempted to make it to the moon, but didn’t. Although this mission was not as successful, it is still as interesting as Apollo 11, and the astronauts on the Apollo 13 mission were equally as incredible. If you get a chance to watch the movie “Apollo 13”, it does a great job of showing this inspirational story.
A Message from the ELO Team.
This is a new experience for all of us and we want you to know that you are important and we miss you. We have created some lessons and activities for you to do during this time of school closures. Just because the school building is closed, you can still learn. Learn things that most interest you, be creative, go outside, stay in touch with your friends, and be kind to those near you.
