We're studying space now in science. For December, students should be mapping the moon at night or in the morning unless it't too cloudy of course. We're also learning about constellations, the sun, other solar system objects, electromagnetic radation and motion in this unit. Students will be doing some activities at home outside during this next month or so. December works well for this with it getting dark by 6 pm. Hopefully they won't all be cloudy and snowy like today!
