    Yeah I remember it too. I was in 4th grade art class.

    I think many many schools were all tuned in to it live because Christa Mcauliffe had won that contest to be the first teacher in space. It's definitely one of those "where were you when" moments for a lot of people.

    i was in 1st grade when it happened. they gathered us into the library to watch it on tv. we had no clue why it was important. i'm still glad i "saw" it. it's one of those things you always remember.
