Last week the Star Dome came to our school. It is a big, black dome that is filled with air. The stars, constellations and planets were in the "sky." It is a mobile planetarium!
The Kindergarten and Grade 1&2 students saw a show about Daily and Seasonal Changes. We got to hear a story. I felt sleepy when the night sky came. We got to see a sunset. The sunset went across the sky. We saw how day turns into night.
We got to hold a meteorite. It was heavy! It was 6.5 billion years old ~ can you believe it? The scientist got it from Argentina.
The grade 3 and 4 students went to the Star Dome to see the Solar System. I learned that Mars had the largest canyon and biggest volcano in the solar system! I was so excited when I went into the dome! I felt like I was spinning!
Thank you to the SSES PAC for bringing this amazing opportunity to explore the stars, the sun and the planets to our school! We are so lucky!
