Today we looked at how the moon was formed and how it affects tides here on Earth. We also made our very own rockets. For a class who do a lot of talking some seemed to be short of a good breath. They have been given the chance to practice at home to redeem themselves tomorrow. :)
We also used some Augmented Reality to bring the Saturn V Rocket to life in our classroom. we will be doing some more of this on Friday with the children attempting to land the lunar Lander and beat Cormac's top score. :)
You can see a video of our adventure today below as well as some footage I got of the Moon this evening.
