Voices from the Stars
For centuries, mankind has been listening to the stars, waiting for a sign that we are not the only planet in the Universe capable of supporting intelligent life. For centuries, the stars have remained silent.
This morning the stars spoke...
Now write a response to their communication. You will need to answer their questions and tell them everything you feel they need to know about the Earth and all the living things upon it.
May the 4th be with you!!! - It's Star Wars day
Today we are giving you a choice of tasks related to space to complete. You can do one task, two, or all of them if you want to! Choose from these four tasks to do:
1. Make an acrostic poem for one of the planets
This could be a list of words beginning with each letter, a sentence for each line or even a rhyme.
2. Find out facts about the space missions and create a poster/PowerPoint/booklet to show your findings –
- What was the first creature sent into space?
- Who was the first astronaut?
- Who was the first man on the moon?
What other interesting facts can you find?
3. Use scrap paper, foil, sweet wrappers and other junk around the house to create your own space collage.
4. Make a space mobile that you could hang in the classroom when we are back (hang it up at home for now).
Have fun and be creative!
Ongoing challenge this week: The Sky at Night
Over the course of this week, we would like you all to keep a special type of observational diary:
Keep a sky at night journal for a whole week. Write about everything you can see in the sky. You could draw a picture of the moon every night. Does it change over the course of the week?
