Borrow the Moon

Earlier this year we were able to be part of a really exciting project. Mrs Williams arranged for some Moon Rocks to come into school!

A big box of resources arrived in school and there were some amazing things inside. There were digital microscopes which we used to study rocks from Earth and beyond.

There were a number of different meteorites which had travelled through space and landed on Earth.

There were also impactites which were created when meteors from space landed on Earth and melted the sand into glass.

There were also samples of moon rock and moon dust, collected by astronauts who had been to the moon on the Apollo missions!

It was an amazing week of study. We were so grateful for the opportunity.

Exploring Meteors and comparing them with Earth rocks.

Making edible meteorites - Yum!
