Nathanael and Samuel dot painted all the planets to display on our wall.
Then we did some more paper mache planets. These are taking a loooong time. Hopefully we will get to paint them next week!
Liana and Liam made pin hole boxes to view the sun,
and Samuel painted and glued a wooden rocket ship.
We experimented with some fizzy, exploding colourful stars. We made them by mixing bi-carb soda, a bit of water and food colouring to make a thick paste and then filled some ice cube moulds and froze them over night. The next day we popped them in a tray of vinegar and watched the reaction!
Once they finished fizzing and exploding we added more bi-carb soda and made mountains and volcanoes complete with erupting red lava!!
For the final night of our space unit, I bought a packet of sparklers and we went outside and had a great time sparkling all over the front yard!!
