We learned about the Northern Lights, the Aurora Borealis, and then created our own using chalk pastels. We used our pictures to make calendars.

Space project 🌑

In context we have been doing a space project. We made up space names for our groups.I was in a group with Zander & Molly It was cool and we got to make a space model. We made planets as well we made our planets out of  tinfoil and news paper. We had to put water in our glue but first we scrunched up the tinfoil in to balls and then  after we put on strips of newspaper   Then we would glue it again and again and do it till you get the size you want. Then get tissue paper and then glue the coloured tissue on the planets. Keep gluing them on until you can’t see the news paper. We got a box and glued some black paper in it so you can’t see the cardboard and put in a stick  to hang the planets on the sticks with string. Before that cut out a shape of a sun  and glue it in then put some glitter and you are done.

Space Models

For our topic we are doing space and in our groups we made space models. This is how we made our planets: we got a bit of tin foil and rolled into a ball. Then we got newspaper and ripped  it into lines and glued it onto the tin foil. Then we kept doing that until the planet got to the right size and shape. This is how we made the box to hang the planets. We got a box and covered it with black paper and stuck a rod through the top of the box, this is how we hung the planets.
