The Space Song

This is a fun song to sing about all the things that you might see from a rocket ship!

How do Astronauts in Rockets Get Back to Earth?

The Saturn V Rocket Taking Off

We are learning about rockets. We want to know what they look like so we can make rockets in class. We pretended we were in a rocket today by laying down and watching this rocket take off. We have learnt lots of things about rockets, but we also have lots of questions we want to answer!

Sun Spots

Today we learnt that sun spots are made by magnetic activity which makes some spots on the sun colder than other places. That is why they look black.
