Good Morning! I hope your weekend was good!
Today we are going to learn about the Earth and the Moon.
Watch the Story:
Happy Birthday, Moon by Frank Asch
Read the Book:
The Moon by Melanie Chrismer
Video: What's in the Night Sky?
What can you observe when you look up at the night sky?
he activity for today is Making Moon Craters
The surface of the moon has dents on it. They're called craters! They were made when space rocks, called meteorites, crashed into it.
Fill a tray with sand or flour. Don't pack it down-the surface should be powdery, like the moon.
Gather some marbles and balls of different sizes and weights.
Drop them onto your moon surface.
Do different balls and marbles make different kinds of craters?
Does it make a difference if you drop the balls or marbles from different heights?
Try predicting the size of crater you'll make before you drop a ball. Were you right?
Explore the surface of Mars on the Curiosity Rover.
And for your parents- Do you like to paint? Some places are doing Virtual Classes or Pick Up and do on your own. Here are some ideas (some have kid classes too):
