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.

First Grade Updates ~ Week 3
Kyle's rocket won our distance contest several times.

Josiah's rocket flew almost to the door.

Justin's rocket flew almost to the ceiling.

Carlotta's rocket was very artistic and had beautiful colors. It flew very far.

Savine's rocket was very carefully constructed. It flew a long distance.

PROJECT 1: Space Illustrated ~ COVER DESIGNS:

Craters To Go Project for our Space Unit
Close up of the planet's surface

A large set of impact craters on the far side

View of the entire project

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

Not sure what's happening here. I hope the scene is out in the middle of the desert!
