Today we finally began building our Saturn V Rocket. It's going to take a little longer than anticipated so hopefully we will have some photos tomorrow. In the meantime we've included some photos from todays work.
Today we also looked at the different phases of the Moon so hopefully the children will be able to look up at the sky in the future and tell you exactly what phase the Moon is in.
We also began our lives as news reporters today and began a recount of the Apollo 11 Mission. We're hoping to out some of these on the blog in the coming days.
We've also started work on a moon model at the back of the classroom. David is bringing some of his artistic talents to this project and together with Ronan they are busy creating what I think is the nicest display I've ever had in a classroom. Just a few photos of this for the moment until it is all done.
Finally we used an Augmented Reality app to create a portal in the Halla which brought us on to the Moon along side Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. The kids will get a better chance to explore this tomorrow.
