This term we have a new inquiry topic!
We will be studying the relationships between the sun, earth, moon to help us understand how we experience day and night on earth. This knowledge will also help us to understand directions including North, south, east, west and how time can be determined using a sun dial.
This week we were all interested to learn about the New Horizons Spacecraft. This spacecraft is the size of a golf buggy and left Earth 9 years ago to reach parts of space so far away that they have not yet been explored. The spacecraft went near Pluto this week and beamed images back to Earth.
This is a link to an ABC news report about Pluto.
