Day 259 of 365: Build-A-Planet

My science block is learning about the Earth, Sun and Moon this term. I took the class to the ICT suite this afternoon to have a look at an interesting website:

There's the main bit where you can observe the solar system and different planets in it and it's all in 3D. Then there is another link where you can design your own little world to launch into our own solar system to see if it can survive.

The kids really seemed to like it. I snapped this photo of one of the boys' screens...he named his planet Francis. It made me giggle.
