At EES this month, students have been studying. This week’s lesson was titled “Wandering Stars”. The 3rd and 4th grade students learned that people used to think that the planets were a type of star until the invention of the telescope. This invention gave us a greater view of the planets and helped discover that some planets moved slower/faster than others. During our science investigation, students mapped out a diagram of the Solar system using Astronomical units and sidewalk chalk to discover the distance between planets. Briahna, Thomas and Emonte were surprised to see “how far away Neptune was from Mercury”.
