Our first day of school! We went outside and used a rope to demonstrate why satellites orbiting earth appear to be stationary.
We used strips of posterboard with stripes to show why Saturn appears to have rings.
Practicing the order of the planets in class
We learned about rocket launches and then had a little fun with some play rockets outside.
Using string, modeling clay, and a pencil to demonstrate that the center of gravity of the earth-moon system (barycenter) is a point under and near the earth's surface.
We used a tape measure, marbles, beads, and various sports balls to create a proportional solar system.
We made pictures of a magnetic field with iron filings and vinegar.
