Today we learned all about outer space, our solar system, and rocket ships!
We started the day with touchy-feely bags full of mysterious objects like fluffy cotton balls, sea shells, and even bamboo!
What did you find?
Hm, what's inside?
Next, we used different sized meteorites to make impact craters in the moon’s surface
What does the moon's surface feel like?
Meteorite soaring through space!
Feeling the craters on the moon's surface
Different size craters!
We then learned about things in the night sky, like shooting stars and comets
Painting the comet
What color should my comet be?
Will this glow-in-the-dark?
Finally, we used space stickers to decorate our rockets!
Decorating our rockets with stickers before take-off
Pouring in the rocket fuel
Gathered around the launching pad
Countdown starts at 3...2....1
Time to launch!
We learned so much about outer space today! Tomorrow will be all about animals!
