Rollercoaster

Astronomy
Today i had fun designing my rollercoaster. Its name is The Tazmanian Devil. It had a tunnel filled with water like a car wash. It also has a 90 degree drop. Everyone said that it would kill people but i dont think it will. We also made a human game board about meteors.

Trash Bags

Astronomy
Right now I am cutting up plastic bags to be used for a meteor board game next week. It sounds really fun becuase I love when learning and kinesthetic activites can be combined. I healthy body makes for a healthy mind.

Astronomy Component

This week was fun in the astronomy component. We were talking about meteors, and simulating one crashing into earth using a marble, sand, yeast, flour, and sugar, with each substance being a different layer, and representing a different layer of the earth. Fun week :-)

Bottle Rockets!

Astronomy
This week we did bottle rockets with the kids. That's when they blow up a balloon tape a straw on it. Then put the string through the straw and release the balloon to see how far it can go on the string.This activity tested air pressure. It was really fun and the children enjoyed it!
