Super Hero Planets!

Last week and this week, our students did a short research project learning about a specific planet and it’s place in our solar system. To help present their findings, each group created a superhero based on the characteristics of the planet they researched. Below you can see their work. Enjoy!

Size and Scale of the Universe

We have been busy learing about the Universe.  Needless to say, that is quite a large realm to begin to understand.  Although our fifth graders will not be responsible for learning every part of the universe, we did take a look at models of how big the universe might be and size comparisons between several different objects.  Below are a link and a video animation of two of the models we explored!
