During Term 3, we enjoyed investigating different interests such as the Solar System, where we got to Skype with an astronaut. We followed Chris Hadfield on YouTube and enjoyed watching his experiments, in particular how to brush your teeth in Space. We created our own planet to explore during Discovery Learning and became astronauts. We visited Scienceworks and we got to make rockets!
Mike Larkin from Channel 10 found out that we were very interested in weather after hearing from us via Twitter. Mike and the Channel 10 crew dropped by to broadcast the weather report live from our classroom. We made props in preparation for the visit. The Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (AMOS) from Monash University saw us on the news and were really impressed with our learning! They sent us a beautiful Australian Weather book and some of their Meteorologists (Laura and Hamish) came to school to talk to us about their jobs.
