First Grade Updates ~ Week 4 Star Gazers and Paper Mache' Planets
Savine shows us the paper mache' planet project. We'll paint them next week.
Carlotta made this fun space alien.
The Star Gazer can show us 12 different constellations!
After the regular lesson, we had fun making new star systems. This is the Black Hole Star Cluster. :-)
This is the Star Star Cluster.
This is a far away galaxy. It's beautiful, isn't it.
Thanks for visiting.

Largest impact crater discovered so far
One crater still has meteorite in the center (dark spot)
Some of Mercury's mountains are seen in the distance
Large impact craters show particles on the rim
These craters show a definite pattern worth exploring in the future.
Planet Mercury is filled with surprises such as this very rare square crater.
One of these craters has an unusually thick rim. The cause is unknown.
A view of outer space is seen in the background
The largest crater field on the planet
Mercury has no atmosphere so the 'sky' looks dark
These impact craters are easy to spot on this fascinating planet
