We had a GREAT WEEK: Mauro-Sheridan October 5 - 9
Online Resources for the activities
World Space Week suggested activities
Lunar Lander Challenge Activity
The NASA version of our challenge activity to design a lander. All materials will be provided although we may eliminate the mini marshmallows!
Earth Moon and Sun Model
There are many versions of this activity but this explanation is clear. All materials will be provided and Grade 5 and 6 students will help each younger student make his own model.
James Webb Telescope - NASA
We will submit our Earth Moon Sun and Webb telescope orbit activity activity with the Webb telescope to NASA. We will need media permission forms from students involved in the activity (grades 1 and 2, grades 5 and 6). These permission forms will be provided.
We hope our Grade 5 and 6 students will explain the telescope to their younger partners. The NASA-Webb teacher page has many resources as well as fun activities showing the difference between the Hubble and Webb telescopes
Online Game Comparing Telescopes - Webb and Hubble (grades 5-8)
Learn about the Webb telescope by projecting the game and playing with your class!
