What do we KNOW?
We know that there are many moons and planets with different temperatures. We also know that the planets orbit the sun. Which makes the days and nights. The last fact we know is that there is no gravity in space.
What did we LEARN?
We learned about every planet and their unique qualities. We made a google docs on all of the planets and the galaxy.
What do we WANT to know?
We want to learn all about the sizes, colors, and moons of all of the planets. We want to be learning many facts about all of the meteorites and be experts at space.
What ACTION will we take?
We will take a picture of our project and then put it on our blog post. We will also tell our family and friends about the planets.
HOW will we learn it?
We will gather facts from books and websites and then make a model of the solar system using only everyday objects. This will be a challenge because we will only use everyday objects.
What new QUESTIONS do we have?
Our new questions are how many planets and stars are there in the galaxy and entire Triangulum Galaxy? We learned a lot about astronomy. Also, How many stars and moons do each planet have?
I learned about all of the planets and what has happened to them. We also made a google docs about everything that we found out and then we printed it out and put it on our presentation. It was so much fun to paint the golf balls and put the glitter on the sun. We had a really fun time. It was really difficult to glue the planets to the board and the marbles also. But then we got a really good presentation when we used the adhesive stickers. It was easy to make the board and just glue the galaxy papers onto the board. That was fun also. We would have done one thing differently and that is we would have done the golf balls first instead of the Play-Doh because number one Play-Doh is not an everyday item and it broke so we decided to do over and that really paid off because now our project is much more stable and will not crack or break. It was a great passion time.
I learned all about the planets and every and their unique qualities. We made a google docs about the planet and there facts. I also found out that there are more stars in space than grains of sand. The most fun part was making our model we made it out of golf balls and marbles. We painted the golf balls to make them the planets. and the marbles represented the stars. We put glitter on the golf ball that was the sun to make that one look nice. We glued it on to a board with a back ground with a galaxy.The most difficult part was gluing on the golf balls and the marbles. The easiest thing was to glue the papers on to the board. I would work for a longer time on painting the golf balls. Advice that I would give would be to not make your project out of Play-Doh. It crack's a lot and will break. We used Play-Doh at first and it didn't work. I think our passion time was really fun. It was great.
