Learning about Space

Hey guys! 

Rata class are into their forth week of learning and talking about space. Our main question is "Could we live on another planet?" 
We have had a fantastic morning reading about the atmosphere of other planets and comparing it to Earth, as well as, watching some amazing videos from Chris Hadfield (an amazing astronaut). 

Emalea and Mikayla K had some really interesting discussions about living on Mercury! 
Did you know there is oxygen on this planet? There was a bit of a problem though... Mercury often gets hit by flying rocks! Do you know what another name for flying rocks are? Read more about Mercury on this link!

Chris Hadfield is such an interesting person. It is awesome learning from his youtube videos about how to do normal Earth things in space! I think my favourite video of his is how to make a sandwich in space! 

It is interesting listening to the news at the moment. President Trump wants us to send another space craft to Mars. We spent some time reading about life on mars... I wonder if it will ever become a reality? What do you think? Read more about it here!

Welcome back to Term 2!

Hey guys! 
I hope you all had a fantastic break and did lots of really interesting things. I am impressed at some of our students who have been blogging throughout the holidays. In particular some amazing posts made by Kareem, Hunter and Elijescha,  as well as, some great comments made by Kay-Lee. 

This term is an exciting one... we are working on our topic of Space and we are learning more about how to create interesting DLO's to share our learning. 

You can see what we have been learning on the Senior base camp site and can see what the students have created on their blog down the side! 

Looking forward to sharing some fantastic work!
