The Night Sky

We have been fascinated by our night sky, the moon and stars, the sun, planets, satellites, black holes, rocket ships... So much to think about! Some interesting facts we have learned about the moon this past week are: the dark spots on the moon are made of basalt, and were most likely created by volcanoes! The moon is also made up of granite (the lighter parts). The moon orbits the earth and when the moon is the closest to planet earth it is called a Super Moon. We are having a Super moon this Sunday, December 3rd. We are all going to try and look at it this weekend! We had fun creating our own moon for our classroom. We used foil print painting to create craters, hills and valleys on our paper plate moons.
