It's All a Game!
Great Game Show Day!
We had a fun time testing our knowledge this week. I was very pleased to find that all of the students studied the material and were quite proficient on the first half of the material. Terrific job!
We spent our remaining time on an activity which correctly illustrated the distance between planets and the sun. We used regular paper clips, each representing 10,000,000 miles, and larger colored clips to represent our sun and planets. Our activity turned out to be challenging and not all students had a chance to complete the task. For those that would like to finish they can reference page 98 of the notebook, or look at the chart below. As a challenge, students can try to determine how to add Pluto to our model.
PLANET # CLIPS FROM SUN
With a short holiday week, I suggested to the students that they don't delay on their homework this week.
Just for fun:
WHAT KIND OF SONGS DO PLANETS SING?
HOW DO YOU GET AN ASTRONAUT'S BABY TO SLEEP?
WHERE DO ASTRONAUTS HANG OUT AFTER WORK?
I WENT TO THIS AWFUL RESTAURANT ON THE MOON.
IT HAD NO ATMOSPHERE!
