Just another weblog


We have been exploring Earth’s place in the solar system, and in particular, its relationship to the Sun. Using an iPad app that recreates the position of stars, students are learning about Earth’s rotation on its axis and its orbit around the Sun. They can use a timer to watch the Sun “rise” and “set” as Earth orbits around the Sun. Mr. Musselman, direction of Burlington’s Science Center, even treated students to a planetarium-style program in the Star Lab. We continue this unit when we return to school.
