Stargazers 2016/2017

It is difficult to imagine how big the planets in the solar system are. We used spherical items to compare the planets' sizes - this gave us a better grasp on our learning. After this, we conquered an investigation where we look at the distance between the planets.To show the distance, we used toilet roll - yes - toilet roll. Each square represented 16 million km. This allowed us to compare the distances without visiting each planet.

 Many objects in our Solar System create craters; we can estimate the age of a planet by analysing its surface. The older the planet - the larger amount of craters formed. Using the sandpit, we studied Galileo's theory and dropped items with a different mass from the same height. We then investigated the diameter of the indentation.

Scream Machine! 2015/2016
